I've never been to Black Peaks, and the only reference to Tres Negritas I can find that refers to the cemetary is the web page listed previously. Everything else is pretty much in Spanish and a lot of it looks like it might even make Muse blush. I seem to recall another grave site near Hannold but I wouldn't swear to it.
Just to prove I do not have a lot to do. I was looking on the USGS maps and started marking all the grave/cemetary locations I could. here is a list. Word of caution, the USGS maps sometime have locations wrong. So if you use these locations do not be supprised it there is nothing there.
.....havent plugged these in yet to see what is where, but found a "new" set last trip just across the road and uphill from Boquillas Crossing gate. Never saw them before or seen them listed anywhere.
Boquillas (Texas) Cemetery - five graves in very poor condition. The fence is fallen.Location: east of Rio Grande Village. Turn off the main highway on Boquillas Canyon Road then travel 1.4 miles. You will see the white Barker lodge on the right. This graveyard is situated across the road from the Barker lodge at about one-hundred yards off the pavement. It is, or should be, visible from the road.
Hmm, this thread discourages me from ever seeing the poorer-road areas in my vehicle. (Though thanks, it's good info.) I have a Tacoma with the big tires and high clearance. I love this truck, but sad to say, in 2W drive version it is a sham! You get the high ride, the good appearance, but that's the end of the list of positives. Because with a high center of gravity and drive on two wheels only (and little weight over the driver wheels, to boot!), this is not really a back roads vehicle. I love this Toyota--it's built so solid--but what a mistake not to have spent the extra $2,300 and gotten the 4x4! I was just in Canyonlands NP, Utah again, and it makes me sick not to be able to drive the White Rim Road and other places in that amazing park, which, if you love Big bend, you will fall in love with this place, too.
