A Cajun Heads West

Because of the major lack of rocks anywhere near Houma, I decided to take a 1000 mile journey to Big Bend National Park in Texas. Actually the gf and I wanted to take a small camping vacation but also wanted to hit some trails.
While in Big Bend I was able to drive a number of the trails, Dagger Flat and Old Maverick road are considered two of the better maintained roads but were wash boarded pretty bad in some spots. Glenn Spring Road and River Road East were a little rougher but you had to keep an eye out for the washed out dry creek bed crossings.
Then there's Black Gap Road. It's the one road in the park that the park service does not maintain, and boy does it look it. It was truly challenging for an inexperienced driver in a stock TJ. There were many rough washed out creek crossings, large rocks, and a couple of high pucker factor spots of rock crawling with a sheer drop-off only feet away.
I'm including below a link to my Flickr set of some photos, hope to add more later.
