After hiking the Chisos Mountains and the Chihuahan desert, it was fun to see the third side of Big Bend, the sub-tropical flora along the Rio Grande. 

I took my shoes off to cross the creek that feeds into the Rio Grande immediately after the canyon and then put them back on to hike into the canyon. 

There are areas that are very tough going with the plants all but blocking the trail.
