Guadalupe Peak (Guadalupe Mt.)

Date: 10/31/2015

Location: Guadalupe Mountain NP, Texas

Distance: 8.4 miles RT

Elevation Gain: 3000 ft

Highest Elevation: 8700 ft

This demanding trail leads to the highest point in Texas, and attracts a good crowd.

Well marked trail was unrelenting from start to finish.

This summit pyramid was erected by American Airline to commemorate an old stagecoach route that passed south of here.

View from summit was partially blocked by clouds on this day.  On the plus side, the wind was calm and temperature cozy.
