State Description

Chihuahua, one of the richest and largest states in Mexico, share a 350 mile long border with Texas, bounded by the Rio Bravo del Norte, (Rio Grande River). The main portion of the state consists of a high desert plateau lying from between 4,000 and 4,800 feet above sea level. In the west are the Sierra Madre Occidental, slashed by deep gorges. The state has traditionally been one of agriculture and ranching. The State of Chihuahua has become 'increasingly' industrial, particularly in the cities of Juarez and its Capital, Ciudad Chihuahua.


Chihuahua is located on the U.S. - Mexico border with New Mexico and Texas, roughly mid-point of Mexico's northern edge. Juarez is the geographical mid-point of the 2,000 mile long U.S. - Mexico border.
