Yet in 1535, nearly a c e n t u r y before the Plymouth landing, a Spanish ad venturer, Caheza dc Vaca, cross cd it. Later, Spaniards and Mexicans fought .the I n d i a n s of the Rio Grande loop, and when the American was young, its lonely valleys and remote mountain fastnesses made ideal hide-outs for hostile, tribesmen, bandits and ·cattle- rustlers on both sides of the · border. .Out of- i turbulent past have come' tall tales of pioneer prowess, legends of lost treasure anc Cattle ·aymg ^ ·"/:- _. .Phont :336 FREE!

Wall-paintings and drawings preserved in dry eaves tell archcologists of prehistoric Indhn life. . · . For bird lovers the park holds rare specimens, such as the coli- ma warbler, aplomado falcon, and hooded oriole. Whilctail deer, fox, lizards, mountain lions, black bears, and the javelins, or wild hog. h.irely hint at the teeming wild life. Botanists delight in the desert's prickly pear with its yellow blossoms, the creamy Spanish dagger, the thorny, scarlet-flowered ocotilto. The weeping juniper of the Big Bend mountain slopes is found nowhere else in the United States. . : ' Development of the park, long delayed because of w a r ' a n d postwar problems, is now getting well under 'way. While cabin accommodations, are'still scanty, new tr«i!3 have, been opened, roads paved, and more camping and water facilities made available.
