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.

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.

JeffLFirst State Highpoint, First Summit with My Boys  Sucess!
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.

osatrikHighpointer climb in 1990  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 4, 1990


In 1990 the Highpointers Club annual climb was here, with a convention in El Paso. Having read of the legendary Jack Longacre in the Boeing BOEALPS history and joined his mailing list a year or two earlier, I was eager to meet him. My daughter and I participated in the convention and the climb. This was number 37 of my 49 state high points, and number 36 for Vanessa.

Started at sunrise to avoid the heat. First 1,000 feet of the climb in the sun. Beautiful morning. I saw no one else on the way to the summit. I know my camera backpack got heavy before getting there. Beautiful spot. I will return.

Texas! The best hike I ever done yet. Just a GREAT time, I'll always cherish. Went when the sun was rising, so it was just awesome in the dawn light. I can't imagine hiking this in the midday heat. But as I was going down from the top, which I had to myself, I saw a lot of people heading up. Not a cloud in the sky and like no winds!

Hiked this up and down in 5-6 hours with my 11-year-old daughter, Jackie. Beautiful weather during the hike. As we left the park, a rain storm hit and made us glad we were off the mountain.

Very windy at first, but luckily the wind died down and it turned into a nice day. Great views of Sierra Blanca and the surrounding salt flats.

Climbed with Kimberly and her dad. Nice and easy 2-hour hike to the summit. The summit register was amusing; people dedicating their hike to wives, kids, or Jesus. Compare it to some technical summits in California, where people try to outdo each other with short entries. My photos are here.
