Adventure Scrapbook – Paradise in the Desert –Big Bend

One of my favorite places in Big Bend National Park is the Hot Springs Historic District. It’s an idyllic spot along the Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River, which was once used as a health spa and as a meeting place for people from both sides of the river. There are several preserved buildings and a magnificent giant palm fanning out over the rugged landscape. I dubbed it the, “tropical paradise in the desert,” in Deadly Exodus and identified it as the place the characters would attempt their daring border/river crossing into Mexico in their desperate run for freedom.
