In West Texas is the beautiful, rugged, and isolated Guadalupe Mountains. Best accessed on foot, the 'mountains' is really an ancient coral reef, now exposed for visitors to enjoy. Also, Texas' high point is found at Guadalupe Peak. The pictures you see here were taken during a week of backpacking and hiking in the fall of 2008.
