Big Bend, hike along the Rio Grande

This spot on the US/Mexico border was gorgeous. Just huge cliffs for miles. Is it easy to cross the border here? Yep. Is it happening here? Nah. Just beyond the river and cliffs is a barren wasteland and it's a lot easier just down the road. :) But we enjoyed seeing this part of the US and Mexico too, from afar of course. :) This is a super pretty hike along the Rio Grande in Santa Elena Canyon. It was super hot too. We learned that April is a bit late for this far south, so go earlier in the year!
Panoramic pic, though it's hard to get the right perspective. The US is on the right and bottom, and Mexico is beyond the river.
