Mariscal Canyon Afternoon Panorama, Big Bend NP 2

Mariscal Canyon, Big Bend National Park

Mariscal Canyon in Big Bend National Park opened before us after a four mile hike across the desert. With only cairns to mark the path, we trekked across the sand and rock south of the Chisos Mountains and up a to the edge of a plateau. Far below, the Rio Grande curved its way through the high canyon walls. On the north side was Texas; on the south - Mexico. The view from this rocky ledge was magnificent.
