On Saturday I headed about 100 miles east of El Paso to Guadalupe Mountains National Park. At the park I hiked to the summit of Guadalupe Peak, the highest point in Texas at 8751 feet. The hike was about 8.5 miles round trip with an elevation gain of about 3000 ft. It was a very enjoyable hike and the surroundings very picturesque. I find West Texas to be a very beautiful part of the country.
