Dom Rock at Big Bend Ranch State Park

From the cliffs atop Dom Rock in Big Bend Ranch State Park, this is the view looking down on the Rio Grande. On the south (left) is Mexico. Highway 170, one of the most scenic drives in Texas, can be seen winding down into the valley. Its course follows the river between Presidio and Lajitas. This photograph was taken on an October afternoon.
