Santa Elena Canyon

Big Bend National Park, Texas

"On the Rio Grande River, this is one of the most famous canyons in Big Bend National
Park. It separates the limestone mesas of the Mesa de Anguila on the Texas side of the
river from the Sierra Ponce on the Mexican side. Its walls reach a height of 1,500 feet
above the river." --Brandon
