It was taken December 2010. It is Micah and Eli at the Rio Grande running through the Santa Elana Canyon in Big Bend National Park. Mexico is on the far side of the river. The three Thompson men left the day after Christmas to do a West Texas trip. The headed west on I-20 with the first adventure being climbing to the top of Guadalupe Peak. It was a three of four day adventure and some day I will have to put pictures of that trek up on this blog. Oh yes, the heighth of Guadalupe is 8,751ft.
