Big Bend National Park, TX 09/30/2013 The sun sets over the South Rim on the eve of the Federal Government Shutdown at Big Bend National Park.

I started my overnight hike to the South Rim at Big Bend in far West Texas not knowing if the Federal Government would still be functioning when I came back down.  Now it appears I’m the last one to see this magnificent sight for a while.
