Big Bend, Texas Step-On Guide

Step-On Guide


This is Jim Glendinning in Alpine, Texas. I have lived in this wonderful place for 18 years, engaged in tourism and writing.

I have written the following books about the area: From Big Bend to Carlsbad (1995); Unofficial Border Crossings (2000); Adventures in the Big Bend (2002), now in its 4th edition; Footloose Scot (2002); Local Legends of the Big Bend and Davis Mountains (due, April 2013).

 I have guided groups around the region for 15 years, including coach tours (M&M tours, Patti Tours), museum groups (Houston Museum of Natural Science) and travel trade groups (with Texas Tourism dept.).

I charge $80 per half-day, and $150 per full day, plus expenses.

Remember – the terrain may look barren, but our history is rich. The desert may seem empty, but it is full of life. Listen to a well-informed guide and go home, knowing how and why.
