Today they had a couple of programs we wanted to check out. The 1st being at Boquillas Overlook where the ranger explained the history of the village; starting as a silver & lead mining town, it depends on tourism in more recent years. The class B border crossing was closed after 9/11, but they're hoping to reopen it soon (the deadline has been passed already a couple times) so visitors can be rowed across and buy chinquaderas in Mexico.
