|Mountains in the clouds at Big Bend National Park, Texas|
Big Bend covers 801,163 acres which is larger than the state of Rhode Island. There the Rio Grande River forms the international boundary between Mexico and the United States, and Big Bend National Park administers approximately 118 miles (190 km) along that boundary.

The park was named after the area, which is bounded by a large bend in the river and Texas-Mexico border.

I found it hard to wrap my head around the fact that this river is the only thing that separates the U.S. from Texas.
