In the middle of the vast Chihuahuan Desert in Big Bend National Park, visitors will sometimes come upon a sign of human habitation or settlement, especially along the Rio Grande. A great place to learn about human history in the park is the National Park Service website for Big Bend, where they have a special section on history and culture.
Special notice! Starting today through the end of September, Whole Earth Provision is donating a portion of each Patagonia shoe purchase to the Friends of Big Bend National Park! Learn more here.
