Camp Scene

Camp scene on the Rio Grande, Texas/Mexico border

An evening camp scene from our first night on the Rio Grande lower canyons trip. It was a big stone beach that backed up to a small field, and only a few miles from the put-in. We had great sunset light here, as well as room to spread out. Because the water contained a lot of silt in suspension, it took on a greenish hue. This helped to hide the rocks that were lurking just below the surface, and took a few miles of getting used to before I could pick them out. Everything is an adjustment.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
