"Giant cane ablaze in the San Vicente Canyon on the American side of the Rio Grande. Amid talk of building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico, a crew of Mexicans and Americans in Texas has been blurring borders, working together to eradicate giant cane, a tall bamboo-style invasive grass that constricts the river. The photographer @tamirhasacellphone spent 3 days watching the crew burn cane along the #RioGrande, where licks of flame stretching 10 stories shot into the air in an otherworldly landscape of limestone canyons, red-tailed hawks and village dogs and donkeys. The crew — which includes 6 members of Los Diablos, a Mexican firefighting team, and several Americans from @nationalparkservice, @mypubliclands and the @tamu forest service — shared equipment, bottles of hot sauce and tan lines on their sunburned faces marking the shape of their sunglasses. We'll be sharing more of @tamirhasacellphone's images from the trip this #nytweekender." By nytimes on Instagram.
