Mariscal Canyon Evening, Big Bend 5
Mariscal Canyon, Big Bend National Park
It took 5 hours to arrive at this amazing overlook deep a remote region of Big Bend National Park - a 2+ hour drive across to pretty rough roads and a 3.5 mile hike across a foresaken desert finally brought us to this point - the stunning Marascal Canyon. Below, the Rio Grande cuts through the 1200 foot canyon as it meanders east, dividing Texas and Mexico. Views and lanscapes like this - with not a single person within 2 hours - are what keep me coming back to this national park, both for photography and for escape.
