Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2014

Attended the BYU vs Texas game in Austin. On the drive home we bagged another state highpoint. Started the hike around 6:30pm after a nice long day in the car. Summitted about 8:20, just as the sun was dipping below the horizon. Snagged some fantastic photos. It was really rainy the whole trip and humid so the dew point had the clouds around the whole mountain, from the trail head up. But we were fortunate to have a break in the clouds at the summit. Descended in 2 hours in the dark with head lamp and full moon. Total hike: 8.4 miles and 3:59:08

We hiked up in the fog on what otherwise would have been a hot day. Saw lots of fossils. Great trail. Then went to Carlsbad Caverns.

Left car at TH around 7:40am. Summited 2 hours later. Mingled, began descent at 10am. In car putting on flip flops by 11:30am. Light wind gusts, plenty of sunshine, and great views! Was greeted by lots of people on their way up. Texas again lives up to its reputation as the Friendly State. Oh, and don't forget to bring an AUX cable or CDs for that rental car - radio stations and cell reception are ify in those parts!

Another highpoint on my cross country road trip with my college buddy Eric. A good climb, but cloudy with no visibility at the top.

Hike up from the visitor's center took about 3 hours. Beautiful region; great views from the trail and the summit. Somewhat windy so took a break below the summit in the sun. Very crowded (weekend) and more clouds/wind, even some rain, rolled in in the late afternoon on the way back to El Paso.

Slept in the bed of my pickup and faced 50mph winds and sub-freezing temps that night, and awoke to a light freezing mist slowly soaking my bag. Cool and breezy conditions during the climb. Wonderful views and great companionship with my two friends who accompanied me. Sure wish I could have brought my pooch!

Weather down at the Pine Springs CG was breezy but nice with clear skies. Mother Nature had other plans for the top. It took me 1+50 to reach the top and by then everything was topsy turvy: 20-25 mph winds from the SW, viz 1/4 mile and brrrr. But the hike was overall a nice experience.

Awesome trip and a beautiful day hike. This was the 35th anniversary reunion of some of my college outing club buddies. Perfect weather and great views. Busy trail on the holiday weekend. Thanks to Linda, Fernando, Paul, Tom, and Debbie for a great weekend! Camped in the "RV" part under a pickup cap because the tent camping was completely full. That worked out just fine. #36 state highpoint for me!

Nice day, albeit kinda chilly, snowed on us on the way back down. Lots of ppl on the trail, spring break and texas' high point = crowded. First summit with my wife though, she loved it

I've climbed this peak several time as well as the nearby El Capitan and I have enjoyed it every time I surprised a bunch of Barbary Sheep near the summit last time I climbed it.

Who said Texas doesn't have high peaks? Guadalupe packs a punch, and rises high from the valley below. We had great weather, though I got sunburned. Oh well, success on State HP #24. Our 4th HP out of 6 on this trip!

A friend decided we would hike this peak on his birthday, and it was a fun time. Met two guys that were on a 13-state HP trip, several people from Midland/Odessa area, and the Lubbock-Cooper HS football team.

Nice day. Overcast on the way up that kept us cool. Then the sun came out for some nice pics at the top, but a somewhat warm hike down.

Strolled up from the Pine Springs Campground at 5:15 am. Had the trail and the peak to myself, arriving in just under 2 hours. The sky was clear in all directions. After 45 minutes on the peak, I wandered over to El Capitan and signed the log book (even though it didn't feel like the log book was at the high point). It took an hour to go from Guad Peak to El Cap.
