Wow, what a disappointment…

I give you the Rio Grande

Really, you could walk across it! After all the songs about this river. I was expecting something spectacular! I mean, it DOES have Grande in it’s name!!!

How surprising to see the actual Rio Grande!

(yes, this a late post, and short…)

Yawn city. Kinda like when you see the Mona Lisa in person. What is all the fuss about? :blah:

*snort* Really? Thanks for saving me the trip! 😯

For years, I thought the Rio Grande was something more than I could spit across. Maybe it is Grander further up north!

Well, hell. It looks more like the Rio Pequenito. And I don’t see John Wayne anywhere!

Mary – don’t make me spit coffee on my laptop again! Now I’ll be looking for John Wayne. That’s a pretty craptacular river.

I’m sure it was Grande at one time. I was also young and thin at one time, but I couldn’t drink wine then so it all equals out. 🙂

That’s why so many people walk across it, LOL.

Yeah, my ex and I camped at Big Bend on the Rio Grande in the late 60s. Nothing but heat, ticks, ticks, and heat. Did I mention the ticks? Ex decided the RG looked like something he could walk across, so off he went and promptly bogged down in mud, losing a shoe in the process.

How do you think so many illegal immigrants get across it? :rofl:

I pictured it to be like the Mighty Mississippi. Who would have thunk?
