Just completed El Camino del Rio (The River Road) for the third time in the past three years. We meet a group of Shelby owners in Lajitas every October and this road is an integral part of our experience. This year was by far the best, as the recent rains have made the area more lush and the Rio Grande fuller. This is a stark land, but the magnificence cannot be denied. I highly recommend this drive, along with visits to nearby Big Bend National and State Parks, and up to the Fort Davis Mountains to experience the beauty of the Big Bend.

One of the most beautiful drives in Texas. Follows the Rio Grande most of the way; steep grades, and winding road.
