International Ferry

A few weeks ago I went to Los Ebanos, TX to get shot of the international ferry that crosses the Rio Grande between the US and Mexico. This is the last hand pulled cable ferry on the Rio Grande--and some say in the US. There are full customs stations on both sides of the river. This ferry, which has been in operation since the 1950s, helps people in the area by cutting off a 20 mile trip to the nearest bridge. The ferry can handle 12 pedestrians, three cars/trucks, and a couple of motorcycles per crossing. Cost $1.25 each way for pedestrian crossing.

Arriving on the US side of the Rio Grande.

Sign recall's when there were stores near the ferry landing--no more.
