Rio Texico Ranch

Posted on: June 16th, 2021 by James King

In 1852 US and Mexico Boundary surveyor Major William H. Emory described the Lower Canyons segment of the Rio Grande as “never having been traversed by civilized man, because of the impassable character of the river; walled in at places by stupendous rocky barriers and escaping through chasms blocked up by huge rocks that have fallen from impending heights.

Location
Rio Texico Ranch is located in the vast expanse between Big Bend National Park and Black Gap WMA to the west, Highway 90 to the north and Mexico to the south in one of the last truly wild landscapes of the Chihuahuan Desert. This massive contiguous operating cattle and hunting ranch fronts on the Lower Canyons of the Rio Grande where Asa Jones pioneered his famous candelilla wax factory in the 1940s and through his ingenuity succeeded in tapping the river through a series of pumps and pipes zig zagging crazily down the canyon side. The bathtub hot springs known by many river travelers along the National Park Service Wild and Scenic River at San Rosendo Canyon in Mexico is directly across the river from this ranch. Bullis Gap and the Bullis Range are also located on the ranch which are deep in history, biology, heritage, and scenery.
Rio Texico is an assemblage of several historic ranches that have been combined into one and is accessed by neighbor road traveling south from US Highway 90 for 13 miles from Longfellow crossing between Marathon and Sanderson or from Dove Mountain road east from Highway 385 into the ranch. Large neighbors, including additional ranchland owned by this Seller that could be acquired, are on all sides of this remote ranch neighborhood and what could be described as a country unto itself. Owner of Rio Texico also owns an adjacent 350,000 ac in one block of ownership covering 420,000 acres. Other ranches being marketed by King Land & Water in this block are Dove Mountain, Horse Mountain, YE Mesa, Mathews Law, San Francisco Creek Ranch, and Tesnus Ranches. Together this represents 64 deeds into the current ownership.

Acreage
95,570 Acres- part of a 424,000 acres block available.

Description
Rio Texico is the combination of Bullis Gap, Rancho Verde, San Francisco Creek, Cow Creek, Slaughter and Asa Jones Ranches. Twenty miles from west to east the ranch has a central main road accessing the various amenities making this large ranch diverse, interesting, scenic, and adventuresome. The ranch has several distinct providences from the San Francisco Creek at the west, the rolling limestone hills of the central region, the walled gorge of San Francisco Shut Ups, to the wild canyons of the Rio Grande to the east. There are a number of noteworthy natural features including the Bullis Range, San Francisco Shut Ups, Lomas de las Palmas, Lower Canyons, Darling Canyon, Wolf Point, Cedar Gap, Beef Canyon, and Sawtooth to name a few.

The ranch is currently managed as a single cattle ranch operated by an extremely responsible Lessee who has invested greatly into new fences, water infrastructure, roads, and pens. This historic ranch is made up of five headquarter complexes, all having a wide degree of improvements and infrastructure. Three of the complexes have dirt airstrips that if refurbished would create a great fly-in fly-out venues on the ranch. Currently the San Francisco Creek HQ is used by the Lessee as the main headquarters with a couple living at the Slaughter HQ located in a scenic limestone canyon created by San Francisco Creek. The others are in various need of repair and improvement.

Habitat
The Chihuahuan is the largest desert in North America-stretching all the way from the southwestern United States deep into the Central Mexican Highlands. Rio Texicos landscape is diverse with high desert mountains to rolling western Edwards Plateau to desert flats and draws surrounded by a rugged landscape and some of the most scenic canyons in North America. Classic Big Bend Country of the Old West, Rio Texico Ranch has maintained much of the environment and appearance of times past. This vast area lies in wide elevation range allowing for mix of vegetation from the mid to lower Chihuahuan Desert such as dagger, yucca, lechuguilla, creosote, catclaw, javalina bush, mariola, sotol, ocotillo, and cholla with a mix of chino grama, black grama, red grama, bear grass, and sideoats grama. Brush and trees include juniper, hackberry, mesquite, persimmon, and oaks in the higher elevations and draws. In springtime this landscape is in bloom with a wide variety of cacti, yucca, daggers, and native forbs.

San Francisco Creek runs west to east across the entire ranch which is a major drainage into the Rio Grande River. The central part of San Francisco Creek is a gorge called the Shut Ups where there is a dramatic limestone canyon with a variety of side canyons and diverse vegetation.
Wildlife

This property is home to many species of birds, raptors, songbirds, and game birds such as blue (scaled) quail, mourning dove, and white-winged dove as well as larger mammals such as desert mule deer, javelina, desert big-horn, aoudad, mountain lion, elk, and occasional black bear. The brush, forbs, and grasses provide excellent habitat for these game and non-game animals.

Improvements
The ranch is a working cattle ranch with some excellent recently improved infrastructure. There are miles of new internal fences, pens, and traps as well as water and road improvements.

Improvements by Headquarters are as follows:
Bullis Gap
Several houses, barns, pens that need restoring.
Electricity at the Headquarters and along the north and west roads.

Water
There are 5 submersible water wells all serviced by electricity that are used to pump, store, then distribute water across the ranch. The Bullis Gap well is currently under repair, but once fixed the southern troughs and storage near the Rio Grande will be put back into operation.
San Francisco Creek is a seasonal creek for another 20 miles through the ranch before it drains into the Rio Grande east of Rio Texico on the neighbors property. Within this 20-mile stretch is a feature called the Shut Ups where canyon walls carved by the creek make crossing impossible by vehicle but there are permanent pools of water in giant tinajas on the canyon floor. Additionally, the Rio Grande fronts on this ranch for over 5.5 miles with its torturous scenic steep canyons and tributaries. This is critical water for Aoudad, Big Horn Sheep, Deer and other wildlife. It is rare to have Rio Grande River Canyon features in this remote wild part of West Texas.
