We set out to find a ranch near Candelaria TX, but instead, we came across smugglers on the Rio Grande River after a number of wrong turns onto narrow dirt roads. After narrowly getting out of this unexpected situation, we decided it was time to go home. A lot of photos have captions – the ones without, enjoy the scenery.
Wild open space of West Texas.
The pavement ends, the fun begins.
A longhorn grazing.
Sign indicating that there is private property ahead.
Pino Canyon Ranch. The sign made it clear to stay on the road – which we did.
Some ruins along the way.
Some sections of Pino Canyon are quite iffy, such as this wash.
