This one always makes me smile when it comes up in my desktop background rotation. It's from Jennifer's First Trip

edit: OOPS, I knew I'd forget a few...here they are:

Man all those pictures would make a fantastic calendar. I just hope my little digital camera will get some good pictures here in a couple of weeks.

Marufo Vega Trail, accessed from the same trailhead, takes you on a longer trek to the rim of Boquillas Canyon. There is a round-trip loop via the North and South Fork trails which will take you to the Rio Grande (... photo below is from this cross-trail).
