Santa Elena Canyon - Big Bend National Park
This image was taken by my son with his iphone 6 at the entrance to Santa Elena Canyon in June of last year. I wanted to give some perspective as to just how large those canyon walls are! (Yes, that’s yours truly walking along the river bed of the Rio Grande with camera in hand!) The walls of the canyon can be up to 1,500 feet high above the river which snakes its way through. This is one of the most visited spots in the Park!
