Gary and Kathy Clark on Big Bend

Planning a trip to Big Bend? In their new book, Enjoying Big Bend National Park: A Friendly Guide to Adventures for Everyone, veteran naturalist Gary Clark and photographer Kathy Adams Clark can help you choose the best hike or drive in Big Bend National Park, based on the season in which you visit, the number of days you have in the park, and your activity, age, and fitness levels.

With the late-September premiere of Ken Burns' new series, The National Parks: America's Best Idea looming on the horizon, the Clarks sit down with Dr. Sharon Colson of Texas A&M University's public broadcasting station, KAMU, to talk about their favorite excursions in Big Bend and the outstanding images Kathy Adams Clark captured there.

See the Clarks' interview on Colson's show, Brazos Valley Magazine, at 8 p.m. tonight, 6 p.m. Saturday, or 5 p.m. Sunday, or view the show online during those times here.
