This image was made on a perfect afternoon in Rio Grande City. RGC is on a bit of a resurgence. Established during the war with Mexico, it has the high ground on the Rio Grande. When I came the first time years ago, I felt like if it weren’t for coyotes and drug smugglers there would be no town at all. Starr County has cleaned up its act a bit since then but the old town remains mostly abandoned and highly wonderful.
