Favorite place: Big Bend National Park.
Big Bend National Park is one of my favorite places. When I was growing up, my mom and I went almost every year until I was fourteen or so. I think there are about eight pictures of me in front of the same rock on the Window Trail at various ages. I recently went back with some girlfriends and took a picture in front of that rock for Mom. From the Window Trail to the Lost Mine Trail to the sand-dune slide at Boquillas Canyon, the variety of hikes is incredible. Just drink enough water out there—it gets hot.
