The Rio Grande Flows on By... (Big Bend National Park)

The Rio Grande Flows on By... (Big Bend National Park)

Having learned from previous hikes in this national park to turn around and take in amazing views, I didn't forget that while hiking deeper into the Santa Elena Canyon. With this overlook I was able to see above the landscape of the Chihuahuan Desert all around to the far off mountain peaks of the Chisos Mountains. I also decided to angle SLR camera slightly downward as I wanted to really bring out that sweeping turn of the Rio Grande as it entered the setting and then flowed on by along the border of the US and Mexico. To complement the setting was a nearby was a small overlook of cactus and other plant life. Then came the more vibrant greens of trees in the river plain. Finally off in the distance were the jagged mountain peaks and blue skies above.
