Spotlight: Ah-shi-sle-pah Wilderness Study Area
The Ah-shi-sle-pah Wilderness Study Area is located in northwestern New Mexico and is a badland area of rolling water-carved clay hills. The area is rich in fossils and has little vegetation to conceal geological formations. The thin vegetation includes sagebrush, piñon-juniper, Great Basin scrubland, and grassland. It is a landscape of sandstone cap rocks and scenic olive-colored hills. Water in this area is scarce and there are no trails; however, the area is scenic and contains soft colors rarely seen elsewhere. - https://www.flickr.com/photos/mypubliclands/9504296994

Spotlight on the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument

One more reason to visit Las Cruces!

For nearly ten years, a broad-based coalition has led the charge for conservation in Doña Ana County. On May 21, 2014, President Obama established the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument. The new monument possesses a rich diversity of Chihuahuan Desert wild lands and unique Indigenous, New Mexican, and American history including training sites for the Apollo Space Mission, the Butterfield Stagecoach Trail, Billy the Kid’s Outlaw Rock, Geronimo’s Cave, World War II aerial targets, and thousands of Native American petroglyphs and pictographs.
