Anthony Gap and North Anthony’s Nose
Image by uıɐɾ ʞ ʇɐɯɐs
Looking down at Anthony Gap, through which NM 404 runs connecting NM 213 (Chaparral and north El Paso) to Interstate 10.

The mountains in the foreground are the top tail of El Paso’s Franklin Mountains, the tallest of which is North Anthony’s Nose. The mountains in the far background, to the left, are Las Cruces’ Organ Mountains.

Photo is taken from within Texas, just a few feet from the (invisible) Texas–New Mexico state line. I started out a bit late in the day; as usual for the desert, everything looks washed out mid-day.
