Hoodoos Trail is a short trail in the Big Bend Ranch State park that leads past spectacular rock formations down to the Rio Grande. It is full of rocks like these that weather and erosion had shaped into intricate columns, some of which look like they are just barely balanced on thin stems.
Rio Grande, the river that separates US from Mexico, really doesn't look very "grande" in this part of Texas. It's hardly wider than a creek. The Big Bend area is a desert, and there aren't many tributaries here to feed it.
At one point R and E were throwing rocks into Rio Grande. I wonder, if they had hit Mexico with a stone, would they have started an international incident? :-)
