The Rio Grande in El Paso, TexasThe Rio GrandeThe Rio Grande flows through the upper valley on a partly cloudy day.

The Rio Grande river flows through the Upper Valley before it turns east on its way toward the U.S./Mexico border. The river frequently has been completely dry in recent years. A full river with green banks is a rare and welcome sight in the dry El Paso desert.
