Rush Hour -- Big Bend-Style

Two enterprising merchants cross The Rio Grande at nearby St. Elena Canyon to check several souvenir "drop offs".  Placed strategically on rocks along well-traveled paths or near a scenic lookout, these retailers garner a few bucks from tourists hiking and exploring the wilds of The Big Bend National Park.  
  Even with aspiring artists within earshot, these international merchants are undaunted as they check their take for the day,  before they slowly wind their way back towards the canyon and across the river to their home base south of the border.


  1. That's some good story telling, Jim. It eally gived me a sense of the place and environment. Go stuff!

  2. Very striking. These scenes remind me of Cormac McCarthy's "All the Pretty Horses."

  3. I love this set!! Great images, and a concise but compelling tale.
