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.
