Santa Elena Canyon in Big Bend NP

We drove on the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive from Chisos Basin Campground for about an hour to go to Santa Elena Canyon in Big Bend NP. The drive was really scenic and beautiful. The trailhead was closed when we got there, so we just had to make the most of our visit, take some pictures and enjoy the drive back with amazing views.

Trip to Mexico from BBNP

Boquillas del Carmen, known simply as Boquillas [boo-key-us], is a village in northern Mexico, west of the northern part of the Sierra del Carmen mountain range, and at the south-west end of the Rio Grande’s Boquillas Canyon on the southeastern part of Big Bend National Park. Join along our trip to Mexico from BBNP to this tiny village to see how does this village thrive and how is it like in there, as we enjoyed our visit, delighted in the boat rides across the Rio, truck/burro rides to the village, and met friendly people, heard good music, and especially tasted great food!
