Mariscal Mountain
Mariscal Mountain is a large north-to-south trending plunging anticline formed during the Larimide Orogeny in the early Tertiary. It has been exhumed by uplift and erosion during through the Quaternary Period to the present. Creosote bush, yuccas, and prickly pear cactus dominate the lowland landscape along the Rio Grande River. This view is looking to the southeast along the River Road.
