Though most of the Franklin Mountains is in Texas, the northern end extends barely into New Mexico. This part of the range is entirely limestone, very similar to Bishop's Cap.

Looking north from the north end of the Franklin Mts., 3/11/06. The closer ridge is the North Franklin Mts., the distant mountains are the Organs.

As before the North Franklin Mountains are at left, the Organ Mountains in the distance. The rosettes in the foreground are Agave lechuguilla; the green spheroid at right is Dasylirion wheeleri.
