This home movie from the Baylor family captures a group of young scouts exploring Big Bend National Park and includes scenic shots of Boquillas Canyon and other majestic West Texas landscapes.

The Baylor Collection is made up of films capturing two generations of the Baylor family, spanning roughly from the late 1940s to 1980. The majority of the films were taken between 1960 - 1980 by John Baylor, and feature his wife, Diane and their three children, Donna, David, and Darin. John and Diane married in 1962 and lived and raised their children in central Austin. In the early 1970s, with the help of John's brother, they built a lake house on Lake LBJ. Much of the footage in the collection is taken either at the lake house, or on road trips to state parks throughout Texas.
