Beautiful way to experience the park  Sucess!

Somehow I did not sign this before; discovered this doing research for a friend headed to Big Bend.

Beautiful views of the entire park and valley. Fun scrambling near the top. If there is one hike you do in Big Bend, this would be one to consider.

Bad Day on Emory  Sucess!

Started the outer mountain loop, temp dropped to the 40s and pouring rain changed our minds. Got to the top of Emory and headed back down for warmth!

Big Bend Highpoint  Sucess!

Fall 2010

Climbed with Kelly on a visit back to the homestate. It was a fun scramble to the top. I am looking forward to more Big Bend summits sometime in the future!

Great Trip  Sucess!

Saw big black bear as we drove down towards the campsite. Great weather for camping and hiking. Scramble at the summit was fun. Stood 15 ft from a mule deer, watching it eat and roam, pretty cool.

Memorial Climb  Sucess!

Climbed this in memory of a friend who loved Big Bend National Park. Nice hike to the base of the summit, interesting scramble to the top.

Nice hike & summit  Sucess!

Hiked up, the scramble is shorter and easier than I thought, nice tho. Camped out the south east rim and out the next day. Great sunrises & sunsets!

Emory Peak Trail  Sucess!

Rangers were apparently doing a small controlled burn up high. The air near the summit was a little smoky, but the views were great!

via Boot Canyon trail  Sucess!

day 3 of a 4 day backpack. We kept the mileage low on this beautiful March weekend so we could really meander and take in all the sights of the High Chisos. Laguna Meadows; Southwest Rim to Boot Canyon to Northeast Rim; back down Boot to Emory Peak trail; scramble to the USGS marker; then down the Pinnacles trail to the car. Emory was certainly one of the most breathtaking highlights.

Glorious  Sucess!

This was a cold spell in January -- probably below 32F the whole time; it had been only 11F the previous morning. The day was clear and the views were wonderful.

Pinnacles Trail  Sucess!

Started early in the morning and made it to the summit in good time. We continued to the south rim and it ended up being an very enjoyable day hike. During the trip to Big Bend we saw nine javelinas.

Emory and rain

Just climbed Emory via Pinnacles trail on Labor day 2009. Rain kept us from the last 20 foot scramble. Rugged hike. Guadalupe Peak has nothing on this peak.

Emory Memory  Sucess!

A nice little spur hike adding to a south/east rim Chisos traverse. Glad to see you have to do a little work at the top! Saw a "family" of five bears on the way back down to the Basin . . . one was the largest black I've ever seen! I guess things really are bigger in Texas.
