Santa Elena Canyon

We finally made it down to Santa Elena Canyon. This is a must see on any visit to the Big Bend. The pictures tell the story.

We had lunch at the overlook area
There is a short trail taking you into the canyon
The Rio Grande River flows out and makes the natural border between Mexico and Texas. Mexico is on the left side of this picture.
This was taken on the trail that leads you into the canyon
This is looking back as the Rio Grande flows out and takes a right turn forming the border
The river had a very slow movement


You can see the trail with a few people on it and also 2 rafts floating down the river
The views were wonderful

This is one of the best areas of the Big Bend. Take the Ross Maxwell Scenic drive down here for the best scenery.
