definitely scrambling at the end is awesome, as well as the relative lack of people along the trail, mostly runnning into backpackers. incredibly gorgeous hike though, with an even more gorgeous far-ranging view at the end

Nice hike here. My dad and I hiked up at a pretty leisurly pace. Nice views of the window and Chisos. That scrambling at the top was fun. Pretty windy up top though. I guess it would be too easy without it.

BassoonThe beginning...  Sucess!


of my peak bagging addiction. First time I hiked up on a Spring Break trip- shared the summit with at least 20 others. Second time up had the whole trail to myself and sat on the summit for 45 minutes without seeing another soul. Always do the Pinnacles Trail, which is steep coming from sea level. Laguna Meadows trail is a bit longer, but more gentle.

The skies were clear as crystal. Very few visitors to the park today. I was alone on the summit, basking in sunshine. Temps up to 70 in the Chisos basin.

Summitted during backpacking trip in the Chisos. The Basin looked so small from the top! Fun final stretch to the summit.

When the world didn't end at the great odometer rollover, I decided to hike Emory, following the standard route from Chisos Basin. mazing hike, loved every step of the way. Fun scramble to the tippy-top. Went back with my wife in Dec 2005 so she could bag it, too. Truly an amazing place.

Trip was to set out from Tyler Tx with about 5 of my friends and myself. All of my friends bailed on me and I ended up making the 10hr drive and subsequent hike up Emory all by my lonesome. It proved to be a very moving trip and the solitude on the hike (I had company on the summit...unfortunantly) was very relaxing. Didn't get to see any wildlife though.

Nothing exceptional to report, but I did start early enough to have the peak and most of the return to myself even though it was Easter Sunday.

We set out from the Basin trail head at 8:00, hiking up the Laguna Meadow Trail. About half way to the first saddle we encountered a mother black bear and her two cubs. We watched them for about 20 min. before moving on. We basically circled the peak before the final scramble to the top, following the Colima and Boot Canyon Trails to the Emory Peak Trail. The view is spectacular and it was a clear day with decent visability. We ate lunch and took pictures before hiking down the Pinnacles Trail. The kids rushed ahead to report the bear sighting to the Ranger Station while my wife and I ambled into the Basin area at 4:30 PM. We were hot, sore, dusty and hungry but it was well worth it.

The second mountain I ever climbed. Took a road trip from Dallas with high school friends before we all went to college. Left a bottle of champagne under the rocks on the summit. Wonder if it is still there...
