Orion Rising...

Here's another image from the wonderful 2013 Big Bend Calendar our friend, Derrick Birdsall is selling to celebrate both Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park, AND send a portion of the profits back to our own Texas Mountain Trail!

Big Bend National Park has been cited by the International Dark-Sky Association as one of just five international dark sky parks earning its gold-tier level for being nearly entirely free from light pollution.

The Houston Chronicle wrote a brief article about the designation awhile back, which included some other impressive photos of the clear sky.
