    The Llano Estacado (Spanish: [ˈʝano estaˈkaðo]), commonly known as the Staked Plains, is a region in the Southwestern United States that encompasses parts of eastern New Mexico and northwestern of the largest mesas or tablelands on the North American continent, the elevation rises from 3, feet ( m) in the southeast to over 5, feet (1, m) in the northwest, sloping. The Llano area is a "window" eroded into Cretaceous limestone by the Colorado River and its drainages, exposing Paleozoic and pre-Paleozoic rocks. The northern part of the area, near San Saba and Bend, contains great exposures of Ordovician, Mississippian, and Lower Pennsylvanian rocks.
