One of my favorite trinkets acquired on our recent road trip through Big Bend National Park, was this small wire dragonfly on display at the Rio Grande Overlook next to the border. A small sign states prices (some items were tagged) and that the crafts were from Boquillas, Mexico.
The Big Bend Visitor’s guide says we are not to purchase from any “souvenir stands” in the park near the border. We discovered this after we returned home. It is hard to imagine that the park is not aware of this display, as it was just up the road from the border crossing port of entry.
Therefore, I will enjoy my adopted little dragonfly stowaway. 😊💙
