Big Bend and the Sierra del Carmen Afternoon 1

From Highway 118 in Big Bend National Park, this late afternoon photograph shows the road as it winds and rises and falls through the eastern hills of the Chisos Mountains. In the distance, the cliffs of Mexico‚Äôs Sierra del Carmen rise into the cool spring air. Just a little further down the road is the Rio Grande Village and the river of the same name.
