400 Pine Canyon Rd.,
Salt Flat,
United States,

Straddling the Texas/New Mexico border, the remote Guadalupe Mountains National Park is rife with desert fauna. Stop by the park visitor center for an overview of this rugged, 86,416-acre reserve with 80 miles of hiking trails. The best places to spot some of the 300 species of birdlife and such wildlife as gray foxes and mountain lions are McKittrick Canyon and Manzanita Spring, which are relatively easy to reach on foot.
