Rio Grande Morning 1 - Big Bend National Park

Big Bend National Park

Morning along the Rio Grande River brings a beautiful start to the day. This photograph looks west. Along the river just upstream are the famous Hot Springs. When I passed by the thermally-heated pools before sunrise to reach this small overlook, two folks were already there enjoying the warm water and solitude. Just across the river is Mexico and in the distance are the high cliffs of Sierra Ponce, the canyon walls on Mexico’s side of Santa Elena Canyon. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
