The Rio Grande in Santa Elena Canyon
Santa Elena Canyon.jpg
This was taken at Santa Elena Canyon on the US/Mexico border. The Rio Grande River runs through the canyon. In this photo, Texas is on the right side of the canyon and Mexico is on the left. The river is only 8-10 feet wide and only a few inches deep at this location. The water in the foreground is runoff in a usually dry creek bed from a thunderstorm the night before this shot was taken.
