Cattail Falls Oasis

A hiker takes a much-needed rest after a cold, rainy hike along the backside of the Chisos Mountain range (beneath the Window) to Cattail Falls, a rare desert waterfall oasis that is only active after substantial rains. This hike is little known (since it's not marked on the park map) and is quite rewarding, especially if you're resilient enough to hike it in the rain. Taken on January 9, 2013 with a Nikon D7000 and 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 Nikkor lens. Click photo to enlarge.
