The harsh Chihuahuan Desert outside Terlingua, Texas shimmers with unexpected color as the sun sets onto the distant Chisos Mountains of Big Bend National Park. These rich jewel tones last only moments each evening.. It's a mesmerizing light show.

Hiking this part of the desert between Study Butte and the Chisos Mountains makes me feel very small. The vastness of this spectacular southwest landscape is especially overwhelming at dusk, when every shimmering, sun-flecked blade of grass glows with life.
