Soon...very soon, the chances of seeing another SMB in the neighborhood will increase.
Actually, my first trip in the SMB will be to Big Bend later in the year. I know you'll enjoy that as I've been there about the past 5yrs in a row. With over 800,000 acres to explore there's lot's of things to experience...there's a few pics of Big Bend in my album.
The Guadalupe Mountains...amazing! I made the hike to the peak just last year.
And just a suggestion while in West Texas....The McDonalds Obsevatory in the Davis Mountains. It boasts as being the darkest place in Texas when the sun goes down. They have star parties with numerous telescopes at the visitor center and it's just too cool...I've never experienced the night sky like that before.
Anyway I'm sure we'll pass one another sooner or later down the road.
Enjoy your adventures!
