The park covers 800,000 acres and consists of three habitats: river, mountain, and desert. It includes the largest protected tract of the Chihuahuan Desert in the US, and it is the only park in the US that contains an entire mountain range, the Chisos Mountains. There are also springs, canyons, and of course the Rio Grande River. The geography and geology of the park provide a lifetime of interest.
