I was thinking about bringing some humanitarian relief when I next visit. Do you think it will be possible to bring common items needed for everday use? Are there any children that could use some cheer? I suppose they can now enter the US and get supplies at Rio Grande Village??? Just want to reach out and show them that we do care.I feel our government really slammed this community without any serious thought.Dave

I'm sure things have changed since the crossing opened up, but before it was open: Propane canisters (the small camping type, not the home BBQ size), lip balm, candy for the children, Coca-Cola. They mentioned cigarettes too, but we didn't bring them any, I mean we were trying to help them right? If there is anything (legal) that you don't want to take across, I'm sure you can just hike it down the Canyon trail a ways and leave it along the river in view of the other side. Someone will come over and get it. (Coca Cola seems a lot heavier than propane, I didn't carry it too far from the parking area. )
