Big Bend National Park - May

Spent 3 days in the park first week of May. We tried to cover every road on and off we could find.

Spent the first night in Rio Grande campgrounds and moved to Chisos Basin the second and third nights.

Beautiful park! Learned a little about the bikes and gear setups. Ready for the next ride!

It's already getting a little hot during the days. We experienced 100+ in the middle of the day when riding the trails.

We plan on returning either late fall or Feb/March next year.

I live in Austin and this is one of the first trips I want to do when I finally decide on an adventure bike. I hear their are tons of roads both on and off there. Did you ride your AT there? How does it feel on long trips? I want to ride there from Austin and camp off the bike. Thanks for posting these photos!

I have been to the motorcycle rally there a few times. Some of the local riders can show you some unreal rides in the area.
