Santa Elena Canyon

At Big Bend, we drove down to the Rio Grande
to this spot. I set up my paints and did this
watercolor of the scene.

Where the rocks split is Santa Elena canyon,
by far the most beautiful place we saw.
The river flows through this deep canyon, and
it is quite narrow in places. We hiked the trail
that leads across the river (but still on the U. S.
side!) up the side of the hill, and all the way
back into the canyon. We met several other
groups along the trail. I even met a couple from
Boerne, Texas, the same town I did the Christmas
poster for...neat.
