Burro Mesa Pouroff
Burro Mesa Pouroff. A short hike on the Lower Burro Mesa PourOff Trail reveals an unusual canyon feature in the Chihuahuan desert terrain of BIg Bend National Park, Texas. The easy trail winds through a sandy area with cacti and bushes then follows the course of a dry stream bed to the base of a high, vertical cliff, where the occasional flood waters pour down (pour-off) from a narrow slit in the rock, about 100 feet above. The stream has carved a smooth channel in the cliff face, exposing the colors in the rocks. The morning light bouncing around the canyon is responsible for the golden hues at the top of the pour off.
