Las Maderas del Carmen, Coahuila, Mexico

Las Maderas del Carmen was first proposed as a "sister" national park to the Big Bend National Park in the 1940's. It is an area of extreme beauty and wildness. With higher mountains and a wetter climate than Big Bend, only a few miles away, it was heavily logged in the 1950's. Luckily most logging was done without the "benefit" of modern techniques. Many of the largest trees remain intact and the second growth forest is strong. Former Governor of Coahuila, Eliseo Mendoza Berrueto, attempted to renew interest in the establishment of a national park in Las Maderas del Carmen. He is an outdoorsman and can see the potential economic advantages such a park would bring to his state and people. Unfortunately, such efforts are slow and difficult in Mexico and he left office without seeing this dream realized. I made these pictures for Governor Mendoza and his efforts to establish a park in Las Maderas.
