Casa Grande

Description:

Casa Grande at Big Bend National Park is supposedly the most photographed mountain in Texas. Hopefully this picture helps to explain why. The butte is the centerpiece of the Chisos Mountains, dominating the Eastern portion of the Chisos Basin. Anyway, this is what Casa Grande looks like as sunset approaches in late September. In the background a late afternoon thunderstorm is beginning to brew.
