Santa Elena Canyon Path

Santa Elena Canyon Path – A little different view of Santa Elena Canyon from the pathway to the canyons as the mountains rise up it for an impressive view of the site. These two side of the canyons, one on the left is Mexico side and the other the US side allow the Rio Grande river to flow out of mountains and contiunue it journey downstream. This Texas landscape had a nice sky with some nice clouds and a path that led your eyes toward the canyon walls. To me the Santa Elena Canyon are one of the highlights of the Big Bend National park, to get there it is about an hour drive on the Ross Maxwell Scenic drive west through the Chiso Mountain when almost to the end of the road, there is an scenic overlook of the canyon landscape from here. But if you want explore more drive a little farther to the trail head where you can walk about 5 minutes along a board walk on sand to get to a beach area where the Rio Grande River flows out of the mouth of the canyons. If you like you can climb up the cliffs as there are several fairly accessable views points for some outstanding Texas scenery that are not too high or difficult to climb or stay below and enjoy the stunning view from below. The river is seldom too deep and in some cases you can walk quite a ways back into the canyons. We have landscape images from several views of this wonderful Texas scenery on our site so thanks for looking. beecreekphoto.com

In this aerial you can see the wirtz dam, Horseshoe Bay Resort, along with the many of the condos and vacation homes along this lake. This lake is one of the few constant level lake along the highland lakes which makes it nice because in this area of the Texas hill country we are subject to a lot of droughts which can drop the lake down. Downtown Marble Falls is just a heart beat away for all they have to offer in this quant downtown area with restaurants, shops, and art galleries.
