Breathtaking views at Sotol Vista stun visitors
One of my favorite places to watch a sunset is in Big Bend National Park. At this spot, Sotol Vista, you can catch the panoramic sunset from a 4,268-foot elevation. Mexico is just beyond the mountains, with the Rio Grande somewhere in between. We were among a handful of people lucky enough to find this particular spot that evening. Some brought lawn chairs, others a bottle of wine. One couple came all the way from South Africa. Most had cameras, but some simply stood in awe. Everyone faced west as the sun slowly disappeared behind the horizon and the blue faded from the sky.
