Comments: This little hike was very refreshing as you go along this inlet from the Rio Grande and the surrounding desert, and the foliage gets greener and greener, the temperature gradually getting cooler, to where you wouldn't even think you're in the desert anymore. I couldn't get over how lush it was and how different it was than the rest of what we experienced at Big Bend.
