Not only is this drive full of gorgeous view points and hikes, you get the unique experience of driving in the US, but right beside Mexico.
It’s a popular camping spot as well. Be sure to pull over and enjoy the views whether you are camping or not.
If you’ve seen any photos of the Rio Grande winding through spectacular mountain country, it’s probably been taken from The Big Hill Lookout.
Hoodoos are unique geological features. It’s an African word which refers to what they believed were strange animal shapes in the rocks and embodied evil spirits. They didn’t look to evil to us!
I enjoyed the scenery on this 0.8 mile hike leading to lush springs and a seasonal waterfall in the riparian area of the park. And it’s meant to be one of the top birding sites in the park.
