Red Bull Can, Migrant Camp — Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge 2007

Trail routes of­ten are marked with ban­danas, wa­ter jugs, or in this case the pop­u­lar en­ergy drink Red Bull. A marker also may in­di­cate the lo­ca­tion of a migrant’s death. It was near this spot that four­teen mi­grants per­ished in May 2001. An es­ti­mated 5,000 un­documented mi­grants have died in the US-Mexico bor­der­lands since 1994.
