Did 4 days of hiking here last week of February/first week of March 2018. Was supposed to be 5 days but got a painful knee.
We drove through it while going to hike Guadalupe Mountain. Very nice scenery.
Although my intro into the mountain adventures began a bit later in life (late 30's), it has been a true blessing ever since. This was the first peak/adventure (Guadalupe Peak) that I experienced, and have been completely addicted ever since. Being in my home state, I look forward to returning in the future.
It's awesome to be able to go up to the bowl and see Douglas fir and Ponderosa pine. This place is definitely a sky island and the peaks are fun to climb as well. my first trip was in 2010
Great country lots of wildlife
Interesting landscape with strange foliage fed from underground springs. Mainly there for Guadelupe peak.
We were there to climb Guadalupe Peak. Sure doesn't look like the rest of Texas!
Came here as a kid and Guadalupe Mountain started something new in me. It took a while to notice, but I will always love my first peak!
at the top. super cute!
Windy, windy, windy, windy windy. I was gonna hike Hunter Peak but then ran int Baumann Pat and we hiked Guadalupe & El Capitan. Had a great day, nice views from both peaks and the rest of the park looks interesting although I probably will not be back for there are many other more interesting places. WINDY!!!!!!
Climbed Guadalupe Peak and visited the NP here.
Drove from Carlsbad, NM and climbed Guadalupe Peak (2,667 m/8,749 ft) in one hour.
Nice views of the TX basin.
Finally got to hike up Guadalupe Peak, but it was a cloudy, rainy day. Coming from the east, these mountains stay the same size on the horizon for a very long time.
