14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Standing on the USA border looking into Mexico

I took a 3 mile hike into the desert of south Texas in Big Bend National Park to find the border of USA looking into Mexico. Directly below me although not seen in the photo is the Rio Grande river. I believe this represents travel in many ways. One being what it took to be in the position take this photography. Many hours of driving and hiking through the 115 degree desert! This photo is approximately 126 miles south of any suitable civilization.
