Boquillas Canyon of the Rio Grande on the Texas/Mexico Border

As much as I have come to love global adventures, sometimes there are great adventures right in our own backyards. In this case, a 5 day trip down the Rio Grande through Boquillas Canyon on the Texas, Mexico border. It’s one of the most remote stretches of river in the United States. Spending 4 days on the river and a day in Terlingua with these men has given me memories that will last a lifetime. This trip defines what I love about brotherhood, survival, nature, rivers, crazy people and crazy places. I love the area around Terlingua, Texas. It’s people are a different breed and the place feels almost mystical. Nothing happens there. At least not on the surface.
