Santa Elena Canyon - Big Bend, Texas

Big Bend, Texas

This ancient canyon is divided by the Rio Grande River which flows along the Texas/Mexico border. The massive size of the rock walls along the river are ominous as you drive up to them and the canyon itself is awesome. When the light hits it in the morning, the shadows bring it alive. This spot is one of the "must see" treasures of Big Bend.
