Depending on rain, the tinajas can be very full and impassable without wading through them.

Description

This is a very nice slot canyon hike ending at the Rio Grande where you can look across the river to Mexico. The slot canyon is a great place to escape the heat as the canyon stays shaded throughout the day.
