PULLIAM BLUFF. Pulliam Bluff is five miles southwest of Panther Junction in Big Bend National Park in south central Brewster County (at 29°18' N, 103°17' W). It is among the northernmost peaks in the Chisos Mountains and has an elevation of 6,870 feet above sea level, rising 1,470 feet above the Basin Ranger Station, a mile south. The local shallow, stony soils support scrub brush and grasses. The mountain is named for William H. Pulliam, the patriarch of a Brewster County ranching family.
