The 2-mile Scenic Drive along Rim Road is an El Paso special­. Local photographer Christ Chávez snapped this shot of Murchison Rogers Park, a small overlook at the southern tip of the Franklin Mountains, in March during the golden hour. “Scenic Drive is a must for anyone visiting El Paso,” he says. From this vantage point, viewers can see the city skyline and El Paso’s sister city, Ciudad Juárez, over the horizon. It’s a romantic spot perfect for taking in the sunset. “Most locals will probably tell you they brought a date to Scenic Drive in their younger years,” Chávez says.
