PhotoPOSTcard: The Historic Castolon District in Big Bend

In the historic Castolon district in Big Bend National Park , you can still view the remnants of human habitation and learn about the farming  history that began here around 1900 and continued through 1961. The site also includes the remains of a military outpost that was built in 1916 in response to the revolution going on in Mexico at that time. The area is especially scenic with the 3000 foot Cerro Castellan Peak hovering over the terrain.

Thanks for visiting.
