SUE PEAKS. The Sue Peaks are just inside the Big Bend National Park boundary fifteen miles northeast of Panther Junction in southeastern Brewster County (at 29°25' N, 102°59' W). The higher of the two peaks has an elevation of 5,854 feet above sea level; its neighbor to the northwest has an elevation of 5,845 feet above sea level. The peaks rise 2,050 feet above Telephone Canyon, two miles south. Shallow, stony soils support oak, juniper, and some mesquite.
