At the very southeast corner where the Rio Grande River exits Big Bend National Park, lies Boquillas Canyon. As with the southwest corner of Santa Elena Canyon, these cliffs rise high to 1400 feet and the Sierra del Carmen mountains rise up on the Mexico side of the river to about 7000+ feet.
The weather was mild so we decided to bike the 6 miles over to the canyon trail then hike the 1.5 miles up the canyon.
We started late in the day and were the last ones on the trail, meeting many hikers on their way out. We noticed several donation jars for the singers across the river (in Mexico) but they had the day off, so we had the canyon all alone. talk about quiet. I shot this pic with the iphone camera
