Good New Year  Sucess!

Tallest peak in TX on the first day of they year sounded like a good thing to do :-). Not a hard climb, really really windy but enjoyed it. Awesome views over the desert.

It was a perfect Chirstmas Gift for me, and my friend, Rakesh, who climbed with me.

My wife Lana and I celebrated our 28th anniversary by hiking up to the top of Texas. We couldn't have asked for better weather. Temps in the 50's, and a very light NE wind which is almost unheard of for the area.

It was a bright sunny day, but the previous day had seen substantial snow and high winds. There was still 4" of snow on the shaded portions of the trail above 7000'. We reached the summit with many others that day and had a spectacular view all around.

A snow capped Sierra Blanca was visible to the north and the drop-off to the west was breathtaking. Going down was much more difficult with the slick, melting snow on steeper portions of the trail. I think we all fell on our rear-ends at least once. We spotted numerous mule deer near the bottom that evening as we completed our hike.

We summitted the highest peak in Texas after getting a noon start from Pine Springs. We made our way to the backcountry Guadalupe peak campground and set up camp. We didn't rest long and hurried on to make the summit right at sunset. We Returned to thecampground after dark and descended the mountain the next morning.

Beautiful climb. Was worried about the temp -- high reached only about 75 with a nice breeze. Left just before sun came up -- 5 hrs up, 2 down. Thousands of ladybugs - many in clusters - at 8,500' or so up to the top. Great weather, incredible views. Well worth the trip from Houston. Saw about 15 other people at various stages of going up / down on the mountain. Drank LOTS of water and some gator-aid. Will do again when kids get older. Will never forget it.

My son, Michael ( 13 ) and I reached the summit. Hike was great. View from the top is awesome. Weather was beautiful ( hot, but not too hot ). Signed register. Took photos. Enjoyed the experience. Savored the moment. Lots of ladybugs.

My first state highpoint... first one I had to really climb anyway. Camping the night before was extremely windy and cold, but the hike was fine. BRING THE RIGHT SHOES!! Don't make the rookie mistake that I made... wear some reliable hiking boots. Guadalupe is riddled with tough rock. Be nice to your feet.

Forgot how beautiful this area is. Weather was perfect, cool, and breezy. Alone at the summit for 2 hours. Great!

Both times I've hiked Guadalupe Peak have been in cool (40s and 50s) and rainy conditions, which were quite pleasant. Both times got lucky at the top: skies cleared and views were outstanding. This was my first state highpoint the first time I hiked it, and on the second hike, it was the first HP for my husband and brother.

A great way to spend Thanksgiving. The place was nearly vacant, camped at the high camp site. Got to enjoy some of the famous high winds the next day hiking to Bush Mountain. The peak was closed since the gusts were reaching in the 90 mph range. A little snow too. One of my favorite trips.

Duane and I enjoyed a gorgeous day to kick off our southwest sweep of Ultra prominence peaks. Of course, Guadalupe is not an Ultra, although it does have a healthy 3,029 feet of prominence. Interesting area.

Very beautiful!! What a feeling to stand atop Texas; what a feeling to actually make it. I don't get all those who say this is an easy hike. I'm in good shape, and I was struggling. But that just added to my enjoyment! No rattlesnakes or cougars. PLENTY of wind. It knocked my glasses off after I turned "The Corner" (those of you who have hiked it know which corner).

Something every Texan should do!! Every climb has

been different, but every climb has been enjoyable!

I always felt closer to God on this one!!
