I was one of approximately twenty-five people who chose the Mesa hike, which was led by David Elkowitz, Chief of Interpretation and Visitor Services.

After parking at the trailhead directly behind the Lajitas golf course, 400mg, 450mg, 500mg, 625mg, David described the topography, geology, and history of the region, including the fact that the name "Mesa de Anguila" is Spanish for "Mesa of the Eel". I found this to be a bit strange since we were nowhere near any natural habitat for these wriggly ocean-dwelling creatures. Perhaps anticipating a question regarding this anomaly, David explained that it is thought that some early explorers of the mesa thought that the Rio Grande, whose numerous twists and turns are visible from the top of the mesa, where can i find Valtrex online, resembled eels in appearance.
David expressed his continuing amazement at the vastness of the mesa itself, which offers 360 degree views almost as far as the eye can see. I have been on a number of hikes with David, and although he has been at Big Bend for many years and has hiked most the trails dozens of times, it is obvious that he approaches each hike with the expectation of seeing something new and different each time. His enthusiasm is contagious, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Las Vegas, Nevada, to be sure, making those he guides share his reverence and appreciation of these natural wonders we are privileged to experience.

Since that time, Shelby enthusiast David Elkowitz of Big Bend National Park has been coordinating the event; Elkowitz is president of the Terlingua Preservation Society, which recently raised $15,000 for local charities.

According to its website, "The Terlingua Preservation Society is a 501 3(c) non-profit corporation headed up by a group of friends who share a love for Carroll Shelby-designed vehicles and the Carroll Shelby legacy, in particular the very special part of the world he would go for R&R in his heyday: the Texas Big Bend country."
Elkowitz said his participation in promoting the idea of a motor sports complex is limited to bringing tourists to the area and "getting more heads in beds."
Although acting as a private citizen, Elkowitz is also an employee of the National Park Service. When asked by the Gazette if he though it was incongruent for the him, Chief Naturalist of Big Bend National Park, to promote a motor race track on land adjoining Mesa de Anguila, part of the national park, Elkowitz responded, "The two are separate. Plus, he added, "There's already an airport there," and commented that the track would not increase noise pollution. "Whether a loop or straightaway, it's all the same noise," said Elkowitz.
Bartee, Elkowitz, and Durant all emphasized the project is an excellent way to draw more tourists to the area, thereby benefiting the economy.

"It's a crew that hikes in and works with hand tools and goes where bulldozers cannot go because it might be too steep, or there might not be access for one reason or another," explained David Elkowitz, fire crew leader for the Diablos during their trip to Guadalupe Mountains National Park.

Elkowitz is Chief of Interpretation and Visitor Services at Big Bend National Park, where the team known as "Los Diablos" is based.
The were born out of necessity 20 years ago to help battle wildfires in Big Bend National Park, a remote region near the Texas-Mexico border.
"It's so remote that the nearest fire response is two days away for any large number of people," Elkowitz said.
"These folks work hard and keep themselves in good physical condition and continue to work on fires," said Elkowitz, who has known many of the Diablos for more than 20 years.
