The county has a total area of 3,815 square miles.

Other mountain ranges in the county are the Robledo Mountains, Doņa Ana Mountains, Sierra de las Uvas, the southern end of the San Andres Mountains, East Potrillo Mountains, and West Potrillo Mountains, as well as two small, isolated mountains, Tortugas Mountain on the east and Picacho Peak on the west side of Las Cruces.

A huge bubble of steam was produced which blew out a large crater.  It was not necessary for the lava and magma to build up a mountainous deposit. The crater is thought to be 80,000 years old.
