Wilderness At Guadalupe Mountains

Updated: May 15, 2021

Guadalupe Mountains

"It's not the mountain we conquer but ourselves."

- Sir Edmund Hillary

We arrived at Guadalupe Mountains after long hours of driving through the far West Texas. The mountains stretch 40 miles all the way to New Mexico. We slept in a campground in the middle of the park near Pine Springs Visitor Center and took a hike on this mountainous land surrounding by the Chihuahuan Desert, providing habitat and a unique ecosystem for a variety of plants and animals that are not found anywhere in the arid lands around. We didn’t have time to visit the Frijole Ranch House, the oldest intact settlement in the Guadalupes (1870s). However, the 3 hour hike into the mountain canyon was a spectacular experience! All in all, Guadalupe Mountains has numerous springs and is a wilderness park experience.
