Canoeing the Rio Grande with Roma Bluffs WBC

I went canoeing the Rio Grande from Chapeño to Salineño last Friday. This is a great way to see the Rio Grande and its habitats without getting covered in chiggers and ticks. We went with the great volunteers from the Roma Bluffs World Birding Center. Although we hit a really windy day, the trip was memorable for the vistas of the Rio and the stately Montezuma Bald Cypress. The wind was so strong it created whitecaps going UP the Rio Grande - against the current. I can't wait to go back on a calmer day and canoe up towards Falcon Dam. THANK YOU to the Roma Bluffs WBC Staff and Volunteers for making this trip possible!
