End of the Bend?

Jetports and elite resorts may do what border bandits, blistering heat and harsh desert life couldn't: rob Big Bend of its rugged beauty.

Ivey believes Big Bend is big enough to handle it.

"I think there'll be some areas here that will be more popular; some areas where it'll become chic to own a big condo or upscale home," he says. "But there'll always be the Big Bend, and you'll always be able to look for miles and miles and not see much evidence of people.

"At each stage of development we're still pioneering. I think there will always be islands where it stays the same." End Of The Bend?
