el cosmico rise


El Cosmico

Marfa, Texas

30°18'11.4"N 104°01'15.4"W

closed canyon


a very narrow slot canyon along rt170 inside big bend ranch state park


winding through battered walls of changing igneous rock


do not jump down any drops you can't climb back up


Big Bend Ranch State Park

29°19'35.9"N 104°01'55.4"W 

a stranger days before told me about a secret water fall deep in big bend national park


where i found four fellow wanderers already in on the secret

while hiking back out of the canyon that column of clouds had us wondering if the world had desended into nuclear warfare while we were gone

possibly the most memorable evening

spent with strangers

now friends
