When I worked at Carlsbad Caverns National Park, this was a great place to get in my peak-bagging fixes. I probably hiked up to the summit 5 times. It's a great hike.

My wife & I flew out to celebrate her 30th Birthday. We summited with our 6 month old son, beautiful day. Went to Carlsbad Caverns on the 28, a must if your in the area. To Avoid the crowds enter through the natural entrance.

My girlfriend (wife now) and I camped up in the bowl the previous night and then headed back down to the car for the drive home to ABQ. On the hike down I made the decision that I was going to hike to Guadalupe's summit and then start collecting state HPs. I actually ended up running the trail up and down to beat a storm, but more importantly to make it back home in time for the IA Hawkeye NCAA tourney game. I really enjoyed the time in the park, and hope to get back soon!

This was a hike that had it all - desert sun and spring flowers below, evergreens and icy winds on the way up. The summit view was hard rock and velvet desert floor. I recommend the side trip to Devil's Hall on the way down for those seeking more wonders. Saw an animal there I did not even know existed - later found out it was a ringtail.

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!

Date Climbed: Mar 11, 2007


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.

great spring hike. Good views- mainly were curious about the snow covered peak in the distance- Sierra Blanca- climbed it the next day.

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.

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.
