We move onward to the River Road down in the desert floor which parallels the Rio Grande. I've heard about all the deep nasty sand before, but honestly, just didn't seem to encounter any of that....seriously. It wasn't hard pack, but I wouldn't hesitate to ride a 950 Adventure or R1200GS down it. But I'm not a Novice pilot, either.
This close to the border....I really wanted to see it. So we did. And look what we found.
That's the Rio Grande behind Monty and you're staring at Mexico over his shoulder. This remnant of an old house or fort was pretty cool. Then, the strangest thing happened. While Monty was hiding in the Fort.
Some Dude comes hiking by us right through the bush...
Can't say where he came from or even where he was going. Just glad I had my camera in hand. What timing eh?
I don't see that every day on my GPS. Just sayin...
