Guadalupe Peak has been on my radar screen for a while, so I decided to go through miles and miles of Texas to bag this peak, which was my 12th state highpointer.

This was a great hike that exceeded my expectations. The trail was great, which made the hike easier than 8.5 miles with 3,000' of elevation gain would suggest.

The weather was great -- it was in the upper 50's when we started and I imagine was in the low 70's when we finished. It was not very windy, although there was a bit of a breeze on the descent.

We started early and did not see many people on the way up or at the summit. We met a few people on our way down, but not too many.

There are some other trails in the area, and I wish that I had more time to check them out. In particular, the off-trail ascent of El Capitan looks like a fun climb!
