eyeonskyGreat Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 14, 2004


I was the first one up that morning. Perfectly clear day and not much wind...surprisingly! On the way down I met lots of school kids on a field trip from El Paso attempting to make it to the top in sneakers, jeans and one bottle of water. They kept asking me "are we almost there?"!

Hiked to the campground by headlamp then summited early the next morning. It was cold and windy that morning and we saw what was likely the last patches of snow in Texas.

Completed for Cops on Top memorial hike. Started early to avoid heat and had the windless summit to myself. Great views of surrounding area and overall a very enjoyable hike.

A truly unique summit. I spent the night at the campground and then climbed the summit in the morning. This was my second time to summit with the first being completely overcast with no views. I just knew I had to come back.

Hiked Guadalupe in perfect weather, then camped at the top. This peak is absolutely gorgeous. The difference b/w the peak and surrounding basin is incredible!

Linda and I hiked the Guadalupe trail to the summit under overcast skies and at time strong winds, but otherwise was a very fun hike with interesting views of this very distinctive mountain range.

There wasn’t much wind this morning, so it was time to climb Guadalupe Peak, the highest mountain in Texas! Shaylee, Kessler, Kimberly and I left in the morning and made our way steadily up the peak. About 2/3 of the way up there was quite a bit of snow and ice along the trail. The snowfields near the summit were the hardest part of the climb and I wished I had brought and ice axe or crampons for the peak in order to help the kids up.

After enjoying the summit and chatting with a few fellow climbers we headed down the mountain. All of us had a good time and it was great to climb the mountain in perfect weather.

Date Climbed: Oct 5, 2009


Best high point climb so far. I arrived about 4:30 pm with clouds over the mountains. The ranger told me I was starting a little late and to turn around if I saw lightning. I reached the top with high winds and black clouds above me, but sun shining in the valleys around the mountain. Incredible site. Fortunately the clouds never let loose, but on the descent there was quite a light show of cloud to cloud lightning.

mtncorgNice trail  Sucess!


Was up on top just as three Black Hawk helicopters flew over El Capitan - below me. Also saw one of the biggest rattlesnakes slowly making his way across the trail in the woods near the top.

CedarNo View From Top  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 24, 2009


Very windy and cold. Snow level was down to about 5500 feet from a storm the day before. It was suppose to be clear but clouds hung around until sunset...well after leaving the summit. Nothing to see at the top besides some rime and clouds. Spent about 15 minutes at the top hoping for a clearing but nothing of the sort came and it's not exactly comfortable either with the winds (and that pyramid doesn't make too good for a wind break!). Passed one group on the way up and no one on the way down.

It was pleasant enough to reach this summit, though the real prize of the day was El Capitan. After some photos and a snack on the summit of Guad, we began the steep descent to the saddle with El Cap. My heart goes out to those who sit on Guad's summit and only admire El Capitan from a distance.

We had perfect weather for the hike up Guadalupe Peak. It was breezy but not too windy. I had planned a trip to the Guadalupe Mountains and Big Bend for a while. Finally had the opportunity to go and thought this was a great hike.

In the spring of 2008 I hiked up Guadalupe Peak every weekend with 40 - 50 lbs, training for Mt Rainier... it worked! I had a great time on that mountain.

RedwicMy 40th State Highpoint!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2009


There is an old saying that "everything is big in Texas", so I guess it is appropriate this was the site of my 40th State Highpoint reached. Gorgeous scenery and great weather (minus the wind!) at the summit. I was the first one on the summit that day, but passed MANY people on the way down. Perhaps the trail should be renamed the "Guadalupe Peak Superhighway".
