User / Beau Rogers / Sunset at Big Bend National Park
Beau Rogers / 722 items
During the spring of 2005, I made my first visit to Texas's Big Bend National Park during a month-long tour of the Southwest. It was easily the most out-of-place location that I visited during the trip, but it instantly became one of my favorite National Parks to visit during the cooler times of the year. I made my fifth visit during New Years of 2022 after having some bad luck during an attempted visit during the previous holiday season. Thankfully, I have become a bit more familiar with the park and know where some good spots for photography are located. This viewpoint is along a short hike from one of the popular campgrounds, and it features the Rio Grande, which serves as the border between the United States and Mexico. I would really like to canoe down the "lazy river" someday. I wonder what is required to basically travel on the border between two countries. In my opinion, it's a good thing that no sections of the wall were built in the very scenic and beautiful park. The small village of Boquillas, Mexico is very close to where I made this photograph. If my passport wouldn't have expired in 2020, I would have made the crossing to see what it's like on the other side of the river.
