Organ Mountains, southern New Mexico

The Organ Mountains are located to the east of the city of Las Cruces in southern New Mexico. Las Cruces is in 'high desert' country at an elevation of about 4000 ft. (1220 m.) and receives an average of about 8-10" (250 mm) of rain per year. The highest peaks of the Organ Mountains reach to 8800 ft.(2682 m) and in some years get snow during the winter.

We have an unobstructed view of the Organ Mountains from our house located on the west side of the Mesilla Valley.
