Afternoon View from Santa Elena Canyon

Big Bend National Park

Looking east from atop the limestone cliffs of Santa Elena canyon, canoers below head west on the Rio Grande and into the canyon. This eastern view shows the distant Chisos Mountains. The road from the Chisos Mountain Lodge to Santa Elene is one of the most amazing drives in the lower 48, and certainly worth the effort of visiting this Texas national park.
