I don't have much time to do this entry, so it's going to be brief...
ABOVE: Parked beside a rare Sportsmobile van from Alaska.
ABOVE: I hiked up Mount Guadalupe, the highest peak in Texas at around 8700 feet. It was a very fun hike. Strenuous, but consistently spectacular. I left at sunrise and was back before noon.
ABOVE: The USPS pyramid monument atop Guadalupe.
ABOVE: I sat for a little while on the peak, in the shelter of rocks to duck the wind.
ABOVE: I continued north into New Mexico and stayed at Oliver Lee State Park. I had a great parking spot right against the mountains.
ABOVE: The Charcoal chimney doing its thing...
