Layered Mesa - Big Bend, Texas

The Old Maverick Road is a "short cut" on the west side of Big Bend National Park. It's shorter as the crows fly, but kind of a wash board to drive on. Nevertheless, I drive it at least once, almost every time I am there. And I usually feel compelled at some point to pull off and paint one of the views. What caught me here was the layering of shapes off into the distance. Simple, but so distinctly Big Bend.
