Former TOURS magazine, now Active!: Report on the Big Bend National Park located in the Southwest of Texas, whose name is derived from the big bend of the ‘Rio Grande‘ or ‘Rio Bravo del Norte’, as it is called by the Hispanic population. With a total length of 1,896 miles the Rio Grande is the fourth or fifth longest river system in North America, depending on how its course is measured. It springs from the Rocky Mountains and enters the Gulf of Mexico. A portion of about 1,250 miles of its entire length runs through Texas, where it feeds agricultur irrigation systems for the most part. The Big Bend Country shares its Southwestern border with Mexico. Due to this fact and its remote location it sports a long and eventful history of illegal immigration as well as in part criminally infringed trade.
