Mar 14, 2011 - Comstock, TX - Seminole Canyon State Park and Historic Site

Monday - We arrived early enough to the Seminole Canyon State Park to sign up for the 3:00 guided walk into the canyon to see the rock paintings or pictographs. We had a great campsite but the park was extremely dry. They had not had any significant rain since July 4th, 2010.

Mar 9, 2010 - Cave painting on Rio Grande river

When Steve and I started traveling, I didn't realize we would meet such wonderful people along the way. Lee and Connie are here at the park in Del Rio, TX., from Michigan. They took us out on their boat today to Seminole Canyon State Park. We entered on the Pecos River and that merged with the Rio Grande River. The pictures are from the boat and two places we stopped to go into the caves where the drawings of long ago civilizations where. It was my first boat ride and I loved it! We will be leaving Del Rio on Thursday and will start our way...

Mar 4, 2010 - Day 18

The laundry lady has taken a lazy spell so we had to restock socks & shorts at Walmart in Del Rio, TX this a.m. Beer was too cheap to pass over - $14.75 for 30 cans of Bud. Drove on to Seminole Canyon State Park. It's a unique place in as much as it sits right on top of a high hill in the middle of nowhere and you can see for miles in all directions including south into Mexico, there is no cover and it's always windy. It has two other features, a huge canyon cut into the sandstone at it's western edge wherein there are many ancient...

Jan 26, 2010 - ROUGH FIN IT

I'm going to put two days together,so I can catch up. On the January 25th Bev and I did a six mile hike down to the Rio grand. At the end of the trail at the Rio Grand is a place you can go to by boat and see Indian pictographs. That night we met some people that wanted to kayak to that site. The next morning we went to the boat ramp and headed out. Started on the Pecos River and out on to the Rio Grand. Up the river we go. Half of which is Mexico. Not to worry, we only went over there when we cut the corners of the canyons. Did pass a...

Jan 24, 2010 - Big Travel Day Bye--Bye Concrete Jungle

Today we leave the concrete jungle and head for Seminole canyon and big bend area. This area is really going to be cool, due to the terrain and isolation. Looking forward to getting my USA and Mexican fishing license and floating my boat. Apparently from info we received on these places ,no cell service or web service. We heard that the canyon may have a WI-Fi. We'll see about that. It's 1/25/2010 and we have WI-FI so I'll fill in the gaps and bring you up to date. We decided to stop at Amistad National Rec Area and I'm glad we did. No...

Feb 15, 2007 - Seminole Canyon State Park and Historic Site

Seminole Canyon is the site of 4,000 year old rock art or pictographs. In visiting this site we took a guided tour with a very informative guide. The pictographs are slowly disappearing due to the increased moisture as a result of damming the river. The pictographs were amazing. We also cycled a rather rough trail to get great views of the Rio Grande River.
