My First Highpoint  Sucess!

We could not have picked a better place to start this Highpoint journey. The views at the top make it worth coming back again.

Two Day Trek in my home state  Sucess!

A two day driving marathon began near Dallas. Drove to Guadalupe Mountains in just under 8 hours and set up camp. Hit the trail head the next day at 5 am with headlamps which made for an amazing vantage for viewing the desert sunrise. We stopped a lot to relax and hang out so it took 9 hours round trip. Once down we hit the road and were back home a little after midnight. I must go back for McKitrick Canyon Trail. Carlsbad Caverns and the Dunes!!

Great day.  Sucess!

Very straight forward hike. Trails are well marked and maintained.

Breezy  Sucess!

The wind was no joke, but mostly only felt at the top. The national park's website says 6-8 hours, but you can do it in 4. Great hike!

HP #17!  Sucess!

Desert-type hike; looking down on El Capitan and across all the Texas flatlands at the summit was pretty neat.

Why did I wait so long?  Sucess!

Lived in Texas for most of my 50+ years, but waited until last weekend to make the climb. Weather was great, climb was challenging. 5th high point climbed, and the best to date.

Beautiful Day  Sucess!

Cloudy, windy and cold but when we got to the top it cleared off. Sky opened up once we were on the summit. Great Views. Hoar frost on all of the trees, brushes.

The key is an early start  Sucess!

After my sister flew back to Oaklnd on Tuesday night, I headed down south to El Paso, picked up supplies, and headed east to Guadalupe. I camped at Pine Springs and set out about 7:15 the next morning and was second to the top from the trailhead. Total my round trip time was about four and a half hours roundtrip with about half an hur at the top. Saw a cool tree climbing whipsnake on the way down. Ths is a cool peak and the ranger at the visitor's center was also cool as hell.

Perfect day  Sucess!

The whole family hiked this one. Good trail, but fairly rocky. We were worried about the heat, but it ended up being not too bad. HP #39.

Texas is beautiful?  Sucess!

5 of is summited Guadalupe Peak. Great friends (Bruce, Scott, James ans Joel) and lots of laughing made this trip incredible. Pine Springs campground was quiet and the stars were amazing! I planned a family road trip this summer and we are definitely hitting as many high points as we can!

HP #24  Sucess!

The hike was great but it poured rain near the top then the sun came out just in time for a summit photo...Must see Carlsbad Caverns nearby! I remember gas and lodging were scarce...

done on second attempt  Sucess!

took me a little longer to get there than i had anticipated. started the hike, and realized about an hour into it, that i wasn't going to be able to get to the summit and out before dark. thought the best of it, and ended up going up to carlsbad caverns. woke up early the next day and got an early start. made it to the summit and stayed for about an hour. glorious views!

Guadalupe Peak #1  Sucess!

This was my first state summit at the age of 8. Looking back years later, this helped me find purpose in continuing to climb, hike, and get out there in general.
