On the left, the beautiful mountains of Upper Madera Canyon and on the right, the high desert of Big Bend Ranch State Park. Down the middle flows the Rio Grande and our border with Mexico. On a cool spring morning it’s easy to forget the strife, poverty and violence happening just a few miles to the south.
