Wind high along the flank of Contrabando Mesa.
From this vantage point, we look down on the Rio Grande River and deep into Old Mexico.
Take the high road! Climb up and onto the top of Contrabando Mesa. Leave everything behind and enter a world of breathtaking vistas and silence. To the South, we look across to the ruggedly wild mountains of Old Mexico.
Emerging up and out of ancient gorge formed by the Rio Grande, we traverse the mesa. Our destination is the Spanish Window and the best view in Big Bend of the Solitario geological formation in the Big Bend Ranch State Park. Designed for the serious saddle time.
Have you ever had a picnic on the top of a mountain? We take our Mountain Top Magic, add a touch of the Spanish Window ride for spice and mix well with a shady spot for lunch. Wait till you see the Texas-sized meal spread straight out of our saddlebags!

Think of cool evening breezes refreshing you as the sun parts for the day. Gold-colored light bathes the volcanic mountains, while distant peaks appear close enough to touch. Available during high season only.
