msihlRoute Climbed: Standard Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 20, 2007


After one night at Pine Springs Campground, we (Hilda, Laurent and me) hiked to the top of Texas with fantastic views and clear skies.
I tried my new Koflach Degre boots and they were comfy. We made it up in 2h 15mins and down 1h 45mins. I was carrying a 60 lb. backpack which slowed me down quite a bit. Good workout!

What a beautiful hike...got up at sunrise and hit the trail. First attempt two months before, I just wasn't in good enough shape...now I love my stairmaster.
And what a bonus...just as I arrived at the summit, it snowed (not in the scary way). Comin' back to take a coupla friends up GP on May 19th. This was my first state highpoint...and will be theirs.

ryan_txFirst state highpoint!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 1, 2007


This is my first state highpoint. What a beautiful day it was...clear skies, little wind, around 70 degrees at the trailhead, and 50's at the summit. A little hazy though, could barely see Sierra Blanca. I also forgot the sunscreen, so I got nice and toasted. Did the hike with my girlfriend, 7 hr. roundtrip.

Too snowy to easily climb El Capitan. When I reached the summit I saw some guy trying to steal the top off the monument

metasyn11Beautiful day up the Guadalupe Peak Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 18, 2006


Climbed this peak during my cross-country road trip from Boston to San Francisco in November 2006. It was a fantastic day, and the summit was quite crowded (20+ people during my time up there). Will definitely revisit the Guadalupe Mts next time I'm passing through.

lizrdboySnow Storm  Sucess!


Matt and I got to the ranger station at 1:00 just after it had started to snow. The rangers pleaded with us not to go up in such "treacherous" conditions. They can be so cute sometimes. The hike was awesome. Poor visibility, but the trail was easy to follow even with the blanket of snow. Hiking in the desert snow is truly a delight. We got back to the car at 5:00. The rangers had left early.

Climbed up the main trail and crossed over to El Capitan. Made for a long but fun day. Extremly windy (that was part of the fun).

One of the best days ever. Went down to Carlsbad Caverns and did some hiking in the caves. Afterwards, hiked up Guadalupe peak and enjoyed the view.

I stand at the highpoint of my birth state (which I haven't visited since birth), reveling at the beauty surrounding me. It's great to be alive!

ElementTexas Highpoint  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 28, 2006


Awesome and rugged country! It is hard to believe that it exists in Texas. We arrived late in the evening and had plans to camp in the backcountry, but large dark clouds kept us in the campground.It rained most of the night. The next morning we headed out early and were the first that day to be on top of Texas. Not too windy with clear skies.Fantastic views! It was a fun hike with some mild exposure in areas.

Vagabond Manifesto

Reached summit not long before sunset with four friends. On the dark descent, we were watched for a time by some type of cat just off the trail, which we finally scared off. Most likely a bobcat, though one of my buddies is still convinced it was a mountain lion.

Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2006


This was the first state highpoint for me and my boys Kale - 13 and Colin - 7. They were real troopers. An incredible view. What a great experience to accomplish this with my sons. The first of many summits for us. We took the standard route, 7 hours round trip. Take plenty of water.
