Swimming the Black River: The Rope-Swing Hole

On a hot, summer day in the Chihuahuan Desert, nothing beats a day of swimming in a desert oasis. The spot our friend Mandy led us to, has to be one of the best swimming holes in all of southern New Mexico. The water was deep, cold, and turquoise in color.

After a delicious burrito pronto from the Pecos River Cafe, we bought some supplies at the grocery store. Noelle and I then headed home where we got the car ready and packed the food and swim toys for an epic day of splashing, jumping into the water, swinging into the water, eating, drinking, and lounging.
