Guadalupe Peak Shadow

Guadalupe Mountains National Park

From the summit of Guadalupe Peak looking east at sunset, the shadow of Texas' highest point stretches out across the desert. At 8,751 feet high, this is one of Texas' best hikes, and the views from here are matched only by the views from the Lone Star State's other national park, Big Bend. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
