Guadalupe Mountains National Park is about 100 miles east of El Paso, near the New Mexico border. It is about 45 miles from Carlsbad Caverns, making it a perfect day to visit two parks in one day.
The visitor center is one of the few structures in the park. It is conveniently located near the campground, as well as the start of the primary trails.
One trail goes all the way to the top of Guadalupe Peak, the highest point in Texas. We chose a different trail, the Devil’s Hall Trail.
After a couple of miles you reach the wash that leads to Devil’s Hall. The wash is full of rocks and boulders, which for me, was too much to overcome to make it to Devil’s Hall. Still it was a scenic workout.

That trail is a lot of climbing over boulders and tree trunks and stuff. And every noise you hear above you on the cliffside is a potential mountain lion. At least that is how it seemed to me as I hiked it alone one day.
Beautiful photos. Despite living in Texas I have not been there yet, but I will go.
