I scrambled off-trail near El Capitan up a ridge until an eventual meeting with the trail to Guadalupe Peak. Definitely a blast. These mountains are wonderful to hike, even in the wind.

WOLFrisingMy first Summit  Sucess!

1995

Climbed with my aunt, uncle and cousin the first time at ten years old, and then again as an adult at 26. My first peak, appropriately in my home state. Started a life time love affair, just took a while to kick in.

Hard to believe that Texas has a mountain this cool. My 37th HP and one of the best to date. On the down side, after the last 17 HPs together, this is where my Dad checked out. He made the first 1,000 vertical and then sent me on my way. On to New Mexico ...

HOT! Brought 6 bottles of water and if a storm hadn't moved in it wouldn't have been enough. Ran into a strange, scary, dirty man at the trailhead, turns out the rangers had just sent out a party looking for him as he was mentally handicapped and had wandered away from his campsite. Have to admit, it was frightening for two female hikers alone on the trail.

Great way to get introduced to hiking and highpoints..especially since its my native state. Great view from atop. Strong, chilly wind hit around the 2nd big bluff. Other than that a great sunny day and experience.

Easier trail than I thought, made good time to the top. Go fairly early -- the peak gets crowded, at least during spring break. The views in any direction are worthwhile.

rasgoatNice views

Easy hike up. Was great randomly running into and hiking with Baumann Pat. Nice views from the top, tagged El Capitan on the way down which was harder than Guadalupe!

Windy, windy, windy windy windy!

Nice hike but very windy weekend. Some huge cliffs on el cap and NW face of Guadalupe. Wish I had more time to check em out. Highlight was running into Rasgoat in the VC on Saturday and going up together.

A nice hike, but it was hot at the base. In the shade it was nice, and at the summit the wind was great.

I explored Devils Hall and the area beyond the trail terminus before heading up to Guadalupe. Turns out I should've reversed this.

About half-mile below the Guadalupe Peak campsite, weather came in, replete with lightning, thunder, and rain. While I was glad I did not take heed to the ranger's advice to leave my rain gear behind (only 20% chance of rain!), at this point I probably should've doubled back and made for the summit the following day.

This I did not do, and I waited 2 hours until it was safe to proceed (still raining, but the thunder & lightning had passed). My original plan was to make it to summit for sunset. Instead I hiked the last mile by moonlight.

So, I missed all of the epic views, though the lights of El Paso were pretty.

Made it back down by headlamp.

Two hours up, one hour and forty minutes down. Only one older couple on the trail from Virginia but they were close to the top when I saw them. Bring the sunscreen if you go in the summer months in the daytime. The flora was unlike anything I've ever seen in Colorado but between that and the view, this peak was well worth it.
