Chihuahuan Desert

 

 

The Chihuahuan Desert is an arid region that covers parts of western Texas, southern New Mexico, and northerm Mexico. Because it lies at a higher altitude than the nearby Sonoran desert, the climate is slightly milder, although summer temperatures often top 110 degrees Fahrenheit. The region includes numerous basins and sub-ranges of the Rocky Mountains including the Guadalupe and Sacramento. It also includes Big Bend and Carlsbad Caverns National Parks.
