essay bro

The Brazos River flows for almost 20 miles thru a spectacular, sheer-walled, granite gorge equal in proportions and appearance to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.  Numerous waterfalls of 10 to 30 feet high splash thru this crevasse called  “The Brazos Box”.  If this were on public lands, it would likely be a national park… but it is not public.  It is private.  I recommend a multi-day vacation at Corkin’s Lodge, as resorting here you will enjoy the beauty, accompanied with a peace–of–mind that trespassing can never afford.


Sorry no map available at this time
