The Devil's Highway - Journey Along the U.S. Mexico Border
National Geographic Adventure Magazine has a spectacular story and photo gallery on the plight of the illegal migrant. Photographer John Annerino and contributing editor Tim Cahill spent nine days in the Sonora Desert borderlands of southwestern Arizona's Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge discovering what goes down in one of America's most troubled wilderness areas. One word - chaos. Imagine migrant groups battling it out with border bandits, vigilantes, Mexican coyotes and dehydration. If that isn't enough already throw drug smugglers and the U.S. border patrol and what we have is a very ugly reality of one of the hardest types of travel known to man. The hunt for opportunity and better living in the land of the free could very well be in the hands of many migrants so long as they can make it in, through and well-out of the Devil's Highway.
The story is truly phenomenal and the gallery just the same. If you've got the time I suggest you head over for a read. Makes you think.
