Great view from a very short hike. Starts in marshy area off of the Rio Grande Village campground ending with a view of the range in Mexico.

Down by the water.  We couldn't find the springs.

Beautiful day for birding!

We walked both areas of the Rio Grande Campgrounds while birding with our friend Elke. We always enjoy the views of the Rio Grande.
Too nervous to try hot springs

I took this walk to the hot springs, but was too nervous to actually get in them.  I worry about who's been there before. 

The really cool feature on this trail were the native american pictoglyphs.
