Sierra Club Taking Registrations for Big Bend Trip




The Dallas Sierra Club trip to Big Bend National Park from February 28 through March 5, 2018, features a chartered sleeper bus, breakfast in the lodge at the park and one of four backpacking itineraries. Another option is to base camp at a group campsite with running water and flush toilets in the Chisos Basin Campground and day hike each day.

The park is located in Southwest Texas along the Mexican border, preserving more than 1,106 square miles of the Chihuahuan Desert—larger than the state of Rhode Island. Hikin itineraries include the Chisos Mountains, the Window, Juniper Canyon, Dodson, Elephant Tusk and Upper Burro Mesa pour-off trails, the Mesa de Anguila and the Rio Grande from Boquillas Canyon to Langford Hot Springs. The usual November timing of this popular trip was moved to follow the holiday season so more people could attend.

 

Prices are discounted for reservations received by Feb. 10. For more information, call trip leader Arthur Kuehne at 214-608-3210 or email Arthur@akuehne.com.
