Big Bend National Park

by Admin on January 11, 2015

If you’re doing land work in the Permian Basin of Texas, you may think that there really isn’t anything to do out there.

A lot of people make this mistake and pass up on opportunities to take work out there.

If you like the outdoors, you really ought to reconsider. Big Bend National Park, Big Bend Ranch State Park, Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Fort Davis, Carlsbad Caverns and a lot of other awesome hiking and camping spots pepper West Texas and are an easy drive from Midland or Odessa.

You can get to the North Entrance of Big Bend National Park in about three and one-half hours from Midland or Odessa, give or take, depending in what part of the cities you live in.

Even better, you can get down to Marathon on a Friday afternoon in about three hours and grab a room at the Gage Hotel, and do the rest of the drive in the morning.

The next morning you can head on into Big Bend and start hiking, camping, or whatever it is that makes you happy. Be prepared with some recipes to make some campfire food, like this migas recipe, before you head out.

The solitude will help you clear your head and be better the next week when you head back to the courthouse.
