view of cienega with eagle peak in foreground
Eagle Peak is the small peak in the lower-right center. It is the remnant of an igneous volcanic extrusion, and source of the lava flow upon which the photographer is standing. Cienega Mountain is seen in the background, where it is capped by Edwards Cretaceous Limestone. Calamity Creek is located in the left center just past Eagle Peak.

      Located in the heart of the Northern extreme of the Chihuahuan Desert, at an elevation of 5000 feet, where the climate is mostly cool in the summer and the winters are mild. The Ranch offers RV hookups and tent camping, plus picnicking, hiking, bird watching and backpacking. Full RV hookups and tent camping are located at the ranch headquarters. Cabins along Calamity Creek are also available. Reservations are a must.
