- The terrain within the Big Maria Mountains Wilderness varies from gently sloping bajadas to numerous rough, craggy peaks disjointed by steep canyons. The northern boundary lies south of a major drainage known as Big Wash. The eastern and western boundaries follow powerlines and contours along the base of the mountains. Foxtail and California barrel cacti dot the landscape, and a deer herd relies on the wash habitat for survival.
