El Capitan Winter's Evening, Guadalupe Mountains

Guadalupe Mountains National Park

El Capitan is Texas' 8th highest peak. It sits in the shadow of Guadalupe Peak, the highest point in the Lone Star State. This view of El Cap was taken on a cool evening as backlighting from the sun turned the high clouds into pastel pinks for just a few minutes. Taken from a miminal access 4WD dirt road, this image is one of my favorite views of the iconic west Texas landmark. Thanks to the park service for allowing me access to this remote and not-oft-traveled location. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
