On my way Back from Texas I decided to try again to hike to Guadalupe Peak in Guadalupe Mountains National Park. Last Spring when I was here it was so windy and the air so dusty I opted not to do this hike, today it was overcast but weather wise it was perfect. A slight drizzle on the ascent but not enough to get anything wet. This hike is a steady uphill climb but since the trail is in excellent condition I didn't find it difficult. I liken this hike to Mount Wrightson south of Tucson, Steady uphill about 4 to 5 miles one way and good trail conditions. The views from the trail are spectacular with the major peaks of Hunter, Shumard, Bartlett and Bush to the north and El Capitan to the south. To the west is the Salt Basin with it's Alkali flats and to the east the highway between El Paso and Carlsbad New Mexico. There were more people than I'm use to seeing while hiking in Arizona (with the exception of a few areas) probably about 2 dozen. If you are in the area and have some time to kill I recommend this hike.
