Hot Canyon Springs Hike - sunset?
« on: January 16, 2019, 03:25:15 PM »
I am understanding that the trail that leads to the overlook is a good spot for a sunset photo over the river.
Anyone have any experience with this location and/or any suggestions?  We will be there February 15-17th.
Thanks in advance for your help

Not sure of sunset views from any overlooks on the Hot Springs Trail, but the overlook at the top of the Rio Grande Village Nature Trail provides an excellent sunset spot looking towards Hot Springs Canyon with the Chisos in the background.

There have been several sunset pics from that spot posted here. Here's a few:

Try sunset from the overlook on the Rio Grande Village nature trail. Someone pulled the wrong stock photo thinking it was the Sierra Madre in Mexico:

Ditto on the RGV Nature trail at sunrise
