Eventually we got moving. At the Visitors Center we watched a very informative video about Big Bend National Park. Then fixed lunch and headed to the Bouquillas Canyon Trail.
Driving to Bouquillas Canyon.
Heading up the trail.
And around the bend more steps.
First look down to the Rio Grand River.
Across the River is Mexico.
Hiking down to the river bed.
Can you see the person at the river on the right....to get perspective of the massiveness of the mountains.
Victor, a Mexican on the other side of the river, sings in Spanish as soon as anyone approached the area.
His friend on the U. S. side of the river.
Strict regulations were explained, DO NOT CROSS the river. Do not go into Mexico any place in the Park except official crossing spots.
The Mexican town of Bouquillas across the river.
It was sunny and warmed up to 60 degrees.
These pictures are our campsite were taken 30 minutes apart.
The Camp Host said the mountains would have more color. Don't you agree?
Another night at Rio Grande Village Campgrounds. Chatted with a lot of people on the hike and at our campground. Talked with Heather and Max from Bozeman, MT. who know Phil's cousin, Ginger. Small and glorious world.
