Yucca blooming at Dagger Flats in the northern section of Big Bend National Park. Dagger Flats is off the beaten path but worth the drive when the yucca are blooming.

This scene has intrigued me for many years and I visit it nearly every time I travel to Big Bend. During the afternoon, the intense light of the desert washes out the distant Sierra Del Carmens while Rio Grande Village is cloaked in shadow from the large Cottonwoods growing in the fertile valley of the nearby Rio Grande river.

When my children were young we would often set out to Big Bend and further west on camping expeditions. I always carried my camera, and back then it was a 35mm minolta slr. On one of our many trips we set out on a 2 week trip through Old Tucson, Sedona, the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Mesa Verde and Santa Fe. Half camping and half staying in hotels, it was one of the best and most fun trips ever. This painting is from photos I took in Monument Valley on that trip.
