Big Bend Ranch State Park is blessed with water, little spots of oasis that get just enough to support the growth of cottonwoods and other plants. This was taken on Sunday, just off the main road to Sauceda Ranch. Even in this challenging year without much water, there's water here, and the cottonwoods are making their beautiful winter transition from green to yellow. Another spot accessible from the main Sauceda road and a satisfying hike to water, is the Ojito Adentro trail. Look for the trailhead on the main road, park, and look for the cottonwoods in the distance...that's where the water is!
