September’s delayed monsoon rains provided a good reason to head back to Big Bend in October. While the blooms were no nearly as prolific as in the spring, the trip was nonetheless very rewarding with 17 new species being found (as of the Nov. 8 update).

Photos were taken in Big Bend Ranch State Park,  the Laijitas Airport Trail system, and at various locations in the National Park.
