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...

cool side trip off the loop to make for an exciting, exhausting 17 mile tour of the Chisos Mountains. Or this makes a good, short destination hike in itelf. There is a little bit of slightly exposed class 2+ scrambling at the very very end, but you must do it to get any kind of view. The summit is the highest point in Big Bend. I've been up here a couple of times and there always seems to be about a million ladybugs. This whole area is one of the coolest hikes in Texas!

Y2K didn't stop us from the top! It was a great place to ride out the unrealized collapse of Western society. Beautiful day.

Good views and good conversation with a group of funky German tourists en route from Mexico to who knows where.

Nice hike. Too bad there was a lot of flies at the top that drove you off the top quickly. Nice day. Lot of people.
