QUITMAN CANYON. Through Quitman Canyon runs an intermittent stream. The canyon begins eight miles southwest of Sierra Blanca in south central Hudspeth County (at 31°05' N, 105°27' W) and runs southwest for ten miles to its end, a half mile north of the Rio Grande and a half mile southeast of the Neely Ranch (at 31°00' N, 105°32' W). The surrounding steep to gently sloping terrain is surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support scrub brush and grasses.
