RED LIGHT DRAW. Red Light Draw, also known as Quitman Arroyo, rises seven miles southwest of Sierra Blanca in south central Hudspeth County (at 31°10' N, 105°30' W) and runs southeast for thirty-nine miles to its mouth on the Rio Grande, ten miles southeast of Indian Hot Springs (at 30°47' N, 105°10' W). Through the upper draw runs an intermittent stream; the arroyo is dry in its lower reaches. It traverses steep to rolling terrain surfaced by variable soil that supports scrub brush, sparse grasses, water-tolerant hardwoods, and conifers.
