Orange and Yellow Trees  Sucess!

Got to the trail head at 8. the trees were just starting to change colors so my hiking buddy decided to take a picture of every single yellow or orange tree we came across. Even with that we ended up going to the top and coming back down in 3.5 hrs.

Third of four  Sucess!

My recent 10-day excursion had this as my third HP stop (#8 total for me) and I guess it's part of what separates a novice hiker like me from more fit climbers. All those switchbacks and the rocky terrain - ouch! Totally worth it though to reach the top of Texas with its great views. Did it in the afternoon heat, which didn't help, and after walking thru Carlsbad Caverns in the morning, which probably didn't help either.

Lots of wind  Sucess!

Amazing views, remarkable variety in terrain. Camped at high camp overnight. Sunset brought high winds which continued through the next morning. Summited about 7:20 am and descended in beautiful weather.

So I figured I would climb up to the top. Fairly hot at 8 in the morning though. Pretty nice views of the plains below.

ST HP #14  Sucess!

Late afternoon/early evening hike on a sick road trip from Boulder. Went to Carlsbad Caverns before this. Perfect temps, no wind, clear views. A great experience.

dry dry dry  Sucess!

Afternoon climb. 1 hour and 40 minutes to summit. Side trip to El Capitan. Ran out of water on the way back down. Very dry, good thing it wasn't any hotter.

Beatiful climb  Sucess!

Third ascent. This time scrambled up the SW side, then intersected with and took the trail a few hundred feet from the summit. Climb took about five hours, we walked down in the dark.

Beautiful Day!  Sucess!

Wonderful cool and clear day. At age 66, it took a lot out of me to make the climb, but I did it! Will train more next time.

Great Hike  Sucess!

I was the first one up that morning. Perfectly clear day and not much wind...surprisingly! On the way down I met lots of school kids on a field trip from El Paso attempting to make it to the top in sneakers, jeans and one bottle of water. They kept asking me "are we almost there?"!
