We’re sitting in a wifi zone outside a small store. Here are a few pictures of WATER as we have experienced it out in the desert so far. All of these are taken somewhere in Big Bend National Park, Texas.
A windmill pump at Dugout Wells.
A “tinaja,” or water tank, on the Ernst Tinaja trail.
Crossing the Rio Grande to Mexico.
Looking back across the Rio Grande from Mexico.
In Boquillas, a border town in Mexico, where we spent a couple of hours. We met a wonderful couple who ran the best watering hole in town, the Falcone, and had actually lived in Georgia for years. Both their children graduated from Mercer University. They explained that the town got its water from underwater springs. Best water in the world!
A pond on the Rio Grande Village Nature Trail. The trail passes through dense shrub land on the floodplain and this pond is caused by a beaver dam the hollows in the water are fish “nests” for laying eggs.
