Wedged between the natural splendor of the Rio Grande Valley State Park and the industrial gloom of 2nd St. are more than 126 acres of agricultural land poised for residential development. If the description so far sounds less than enticing, then take a moment to assess your options at the Rio Bravo Riverside Picnic Area parking lot: To the west, a fully accessible nature trail leads to picnic sites and continues in a quarter-mile loop that visits the edge of the Rio Grande. To the north, wood fences mark a trail that winds beneath a canopy of majestic cottonwoods. Informal paths split from the main trail and weave deeper into the bosque. To the south, numerous paths squeak beneath the Rio Bravo bridge, allowing further exploration of these wooded banks. And to the east is Poco Loco Frontage Road, the beginning (and end) of a search for remnants of a vanishing past.
