  • A GREAT PLACE to slow down a take some time visiting the Rio Grand while it still has flowing water. We have seen the headwaters near Creed Colorado and the dry riverbed in Texas... So Cool!!
  • This is just a spectacular place that has now been made into a national recreation area to help preserve it. The East Side belongs to the native Americans and the West side of the gorge belongs to the bureau of land management. Excellent hunting fishing and hiking also rock hounding, beautiful scenery photography I highly recommend.
