The Pecos River arises near Pecos, New Mexico, United States, and flows for 926 miles (1,490 km) through the eastern portion of that state and neighboring Texas before it empties into the Rio Grande near Del Rio. The river's drainage basin is approximately 44,300 square miles (115,000 km2) in size.
