Today we slept in and finally got started as the sun began to shine and the temps began to rise. We arrived at the Santa Elena Canyon at about 12:30 ahter drivin 15 miles along the scenic gravel "Old Maverick Road". We enjoyed a picnic lunch outside the canyon entrance and then started on the trail. This is a beautiful hike along the Rio Grande through a canyon with 1000 foot sheer cliffs ...

Digging up Dom

... throw a rock into Mexico. There's no fence, no border guard, and it's so remote, and rugged, it would be incredibly difficult to cross here. If you wanted, you could wade across the river in some parts, swim in others, and go to Mexico and back...in under two or three minutes. The border has always been porous here. Animals and people have crossed back and forth here for hundreds of years with no thought of the fact they're crossing an international ...
