The other border

Southern Border

I spent the last weekend of January at the northern edge of our country, walking on the frozen edges of a wide river that acts as a border. I spent the last weekend of February at the southern edge of our country, hiking along a sleepy, sunny river that runs through a desert landscape.

I've been there! Did you do any of the raft trips?

Big Bend? We've been wanting to go there for a while --

Yes, we were at Big Bend National Park in Texas. We didn't do a raft trip, partly because we didn't have time and partly because the river was pretty low. I'd love to go back and do a boat trip some time.
