Las Burras Canyon, also called Burros Canyon, is a valley with an intermittent stream that rises on the edge of Cerro de las Burras in southern Presidio County (at 29°25' N, 104°07' W) and runs four miles south to its mouth on the Rio Grande at Domingo (at 29°23' N, 204°06' W). Its course crosses desert mountain terrain and canyon land and is marked by volcanic rocks and alluvial fans of outwash deposits. The soil in the area is generally light reddish-brown to brown sand and clay loam, rough and stony. The vegetation consists primarily of sparse grasses, cacti, and desert shrubs.
