GUADALUPE CANYON. Guadalupe Canyon, a valley through which runs an intermittent stream, originates in the Guadalupe Mountains National Park a half mile east of Guadalupe Peak and two miles west of Pine Springs, in northwestern Culberson County (at 31°54' N, 104°51' W). It runs southeast for five miles to its end, three miles south of Guadalupe Pass and two miles northeast of the intersection of U.S. Highway 62/180 and State Highway 54 (at 31°49' N, 104°49' W). The canyon runs through steep, rocky terrain surfaced by shallow, stony soils that support live oaks, piñons, junipers, and grasses.
