Big Bend National Park in Texas is famous for its amazing sunsets! One of the most remote and least visited of the major national parks in the continental US, Big Bend is an amazing place to escape into the wilderness and enjoy some peace and quiet. To the immediate south of the park is the Rio Grande and beyond that — Mexico! Countless dirt roads and hiking trails criss-cross the arid landscape and you could spend a lifetime exploring this amazing National Park.
