Very cool Will! One of the trips I want to do is go over Hayden Pass, camp out in the park, then back over Medano Pass and home! Also need to make it to Zapata Fall some day.
The Gator Farm is also a kick in the pants (though a bit $$) - last year I took my buddy there and one of the workers was digging around in the muddy water trying to find a gator that had duct tape on its mouth - he was a comical guy and watching him mess with the gators (<6' in length ones) barehanded and barefooted for 15-20 minutes made it all worth it! We were almost on the ground laughing!
