Photographer's Note

The Rio Grande passing through Santa Elena Canyon in Big Bend National Park. The left is Mexico, the right is the United States. I love this canyon because it's really inaccesible but you can cross over the border, illegally, and stand on the Mexico beach where the cliffs block you from further travel.
Side note: Just out of frame to the right is an inconsiderate guy on a cell phone! The light was perfect and several of us were standing there waiting while he paced back and forth, oblivious to the beautiful scend he was in the middle of. After much yelling and waving to try and get his attention, a young lady walked over to him, pointed us out with our cameras and made him get out of the way! So, thank you to her and to everyone else, the surrounding world doesn't disappear just because you found a cell signal!
