Big Bend National Park - Multi Day Adventure
Location: Big Bend National Park, TX
Description:

Cost: $400 Studnet | $450 Guest 

Depart time: Saturday, November 23 @ 5:00 PM       

Return time: Sunday, December 1 @ 8:00 PM 

Drive time: 20 h

Pre-trip meeting: Tuesday, November 19 @ 8:00 PM 

Included: River permits, boats, gear, dinner on the river, camping, transportation & hotel accommodations

Located in West Texas, Big Bend will allow you to enjoy dark night skies with beautiful starry views and rivers that carve awe-inspiring canyons in the limestone walls. You can expect sunny and 75 degree days, which will be a welcomed change from the chilly November days of Kentucky. You might just get lucky and spot some mule deer, coyotes, or foxes while in the park(from a safe distance of course).  On this multi-day adventure, you will get to float down the Rio Grande relaxing on a two to four-day river trip through Boquillas Canyon. The rapids in this 33-mile journey only rate up to Class II. Camping a couple of nights by the soothing sounds of the river, and marveling at the 1,200-foot canyon walls, allow time to forget the daily distractions of life. As you travel down the canyon, notice the remains of candelilla wax mining camps on the Mexican side of the river. After our time on the river, a sunrise hike to the Miners Trail is a must. Come enjoy the beautiful sights, and sounds of this marvelously park in Texas.
