The mouth of Santa Elena Canyon in what is now Big Bend National Park as seen 120 years ago, in 1899. This was taken by a USGS survey team and the photos associated with this trip are the first time the world at large was able to see what Big Bend actually looked like. It hasn't changed much in 116 years, I can tell you that!
That picture reminded me of Ansel Adams' photo of Santa Elena, circa 1947.A search for his picture landed me here: https://thechouters.blogspot.com/2018/03/big-bend-national-park.htmlThree photographs, taken across a span of nearly 120 years.The land endures, we are the temporal travelers across it.
