Santa Elena Canyon in the Morning Light 1

Santa Elena Canyon

The first light of a spring morning bathes the 1,500 feet high walls of Big Bend's Santa Elena Canyon in a warm glow. The Rio Grande River runs through this canyon and divides the border of Texas and Mexico. The water was low enough in on this morning for me to wade out and capture this scene from the midde of the river. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
