The headwaters of the '''Pecos River''' are located north of [[Pecos, New Mexico]], [[United States]], at an elevation of over 12,000 feet on the western slope of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range in Mora County<ref>http://www.ose.state.nm.us/isc_pecos.html</ref>. The river flows for 926 miles through the eastern portion of that state and neighboring [[Texas]] before it empties into the [[Rio Grande]] near [[Del Rio, Texas|Del Rio]]. The river's [[drainage basin]] is approximately {{convert|44300|sqmi|km2|0}} in size.<ref name=largest>[http://pubs.usgs.gov/of/1987/ofr87-242/ Largest Rivers of the United States], USGS</ref>
