Casa Grande on Fire
Sunsets really do set the Chisos Mountains ablaze at Big Bend National Park. This particular peak is named Casa Grande; due to its majestic prominence in the Chisos Basin valley, Casa Grande has become something of a poster child for the park. Dream on, hikers and rock climbers – park rangers adamantly deny access to the peak, since human presence tears up the fragile rock that gives Casa its character.
