In the s, quicksilver was discovered near Terlingua, 11 miles to the north, attracting miners, speculators and folks on the lam from somewhere else. As her honor, the mayor, explained to me en espanol, with her young friend translating, she waded across to visit with friends and relatives who live on this side of the river, but she was making a symbolic gesture, as well.

Across the river, in the states of Chihuahua and Coahuila, cattle ranches and mining enterprises sprang up. Back to Gallery A festive crowd gathers in the middle of the Rio Grande Top of the News. Federal agents descended on the Lajitas Trading Post on check-cashing day, rounded up a couple of dozen Mexicans and arrested the river boatman, who spent several weeks in jail. With increased commerce across the Rio Grande, Lajitas was designated a substation port of entry.
