Guadalupe Peak Day Hike

February 29 @ 6:00 am - 6:00 pm

For my birthday this year I’d love to invite all of you to join me on a hike to the highest peak in Texas, Guadalupe Peak! Standing at 8,751 ft above sea level, this peak is part of the Guadalupe Mountain Range stretching from southeastern New Mexico to West Texas. Along the 8+ miles and 3000+ ft we will gain, you can expect a variety of changing landscapes and some snow this time of year. From the summit, you will be able to see views of El Capitan, Texas’s second highest peak, as well as miles of dessert stretching east and familiar peaks to the west. Check out this video and the link to the National Park Service’s info page on this hike:
