South Prong Mitten
The Mitten is found in the South Prong Canyon of Texas' Caprock Canyons State Park. The Caprock is a surprisingly beautiful landscape that few people outside of Texas...or even in Texas...are aware of. A great history of it and its near brush with National Park-hood can be read in Dan Flores' book "Caprock Canyonlands".

And, yes. This is all news to me. I didn't know about this landscape.

Most don't, since the bulk of it is on private land. It is pretty striking though, and worth some time. You ought to read Dan Flores' book "Caprock Canyonlands". It is a great read.

Thanks! I really appreciate it, since this area tends to slip through the cracks.

New Mexico has a special place in my heart, and I think about heading out there every day (though I am glad I live where I do). I am excited to see your submissions for the state and I really hope you continue to add stuff so I can travel there vicariously! By the way, I have the NG topo software for New Mexico and all the surrounding states, so if you want to add maps to anything, I am glad to send them your way!
