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.

Sunrise ascent  Sucess!

Solo. Ascended in the dark for sunrise on the summit. Awesome summit shadow. Met some kind of baby feline on the trail, but could not make out more than ears and eyeshine before it left. Also met a majestic buck near the bottom of the trail on the way down. Sublime.

Guadalupe + El Capitan  Sucess!

For the crazy adventurer, I highly recommend the bushwhack adventure to El Cap.

Made it around that corner!   Sucess!

Climbed this solo, not prepared for the sheets of ice at the top! There was one drop off/cliff/corner part where I actually thought I was going to die... but didn't! It was a very fun climb. Left a little too late in the day and ended up descending in the dark. It all turned out well.

Big Views in a big state.  Sucess!

We got lucky with a beautiful day, temps in the 50's with very little wind.

Great Hike!  Sucess!

This was an amazing hike with two of my kids. It was my 12th high point and the 11th and 7th high point for my son and daughter respectively. This is my favorite high point so far!

In Memoriam
Captain Jennifer M. Foy
May 29, 1980 - December 17, 2016
Two weeks before this trip, I received news that an OCS classmate had been killed in cowardly act of domestic violence. The perpetrator, an ex boyfriend and fellow soldier, then turned the gun on himself. It was a shock and a tragedy. She was always positive, and she uplifted those around her. During the hardest times of Officer Candidate School her strength and fun attitude helped all of us get through. Her funeral was the day before we climbed. I climbed to honor her memory and to raise awareness of domestic violence. I paid my respects for her on the summit by writing a short note in the summit register before we descended. Rest in peace, Jen.
