    Default The Wilds of Guadalupe Mountains National Park

    For the latter-day pioneer willing to find and make peace with a remote and inhospitable place, Guadalupe Mountains National Park in West Texas will stimulate the senses and challenge the imagination. Left, an imposing slab of limestone known as El Capitan rises from the desert floor.


    A limestone cave with stalactites and stalagmites. Perhaps because it is so lightly promoted, the sprawling park receives only about 200,000 visitors a year.





    The signature hike in the park is to Guadalupe Peak. At 8,749 feet, it's the highest point in Texas.
