Abstract

This site is located along U.S. 62, 0.75 mi (1.2 km) north of the Texas-New Mexico state line and 12 mi (20 km) southwest of Carlsbad Caverns (Fig. 1). This is the main two-lane highway between Carlsbad, New Mexico, and El Paso, Texas. The shoulder of the highway at the outcrop is wide enough to accommodate a single row of cars. The geographic relationship of the outcrop to the Gypsum Plain, a vast expanse (1000 sq mi—2600 sq km)of outcropping gypsum, and to other physiographic features in the vicinity is shown in Figure 1.
