Big Bend Trip

I am thinking of heading to Big Bend November 24 - November 27. Anyone suggest particular points of interest?

Thanks,
Tom

I went there last year, all I can say is it is a very big park. There are lots and lots of dirty roads you can drive down in you d90. It would also be a great place to cruise around on a motorcycle, there must be 100 miles of paved wide open roads in the park. And watch out for the Javelina they are everywhere....

Really?!? I was going to camp outside, but it might not be a bad idea to sleep in the car if that is the case. Thanks for the heads up.

We camped in a tent and during the night a think there must have been 3 or 4 herds of them move through out camp grounds. And there are signs everywhere warning about leaving food out...even during the day they are moving freely through the park. It is a great place, I would go back in a second...there are some true mountains there, not just big hills.
