The Rio Grande runs deep through spectacular canyons in both New Mexico and the Texas/Mexico border. These canyons and bio-regions are protected by the Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument and the Big Bend National Monument. The best way to see these incredible canyons is by raft, canoe or kayak. The Santa Elena Canyon is a eight mile, fully committed adventure with no way out but down!
And don’t forget your rock slide river map. Trust me you will need it.
