14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Cave Glow, Burro Mesa Pour-off, Big Bend National Park

I approached the Pour-off in awe, imagining the waterfall when it rains. My eyes kept focusing on the cave near the top that had a golden glow that seemed to be caused by interior electrical lighting. Instead, it was sunlight being reflected from the interior minerals. Truly one of the miracles of nature.
