Imagine farms of corn, beans, and squash in the river's floodplain

We took this photo on Saturday, at Big Bend National Park's Hot Springs Historic District.  This is the view from the remains of the historic Hot Springs resort motel.  Stay tuned for the next few days for images of this special place.

Along the banks of the Rio Grande, farmers on both sides of the river carved out a living growing beans, corns and squash in the sandy soil.

Learn about taking a soak yourself, just as tourists did in the 1920s through the 50s.

Take a look at the rock art left by ancient people.

Plan a visit yourself!
