We are off to the Guadalupe Mountains National Park. Where in the world is that you ask? SE New Mexico south of Carlsbad Caverns. And it is a national park so I get the stamp!! Woo hoo.
|Our Rouge from Silver City to Guadalupe Mountains by way of El Paso, Texas|
|from the Park website|
|Looking at the highest point in Texas, 8746 ft. We behind that top right point|
The campsite is in the parking lot. No hookups but great views and only $4 per day.
|Our campsite nestled in amongst other RV's.|
|Our new painting. An original purchased in Silver City. Fits on wall next to Fridge with our Suaguaro NP poster.|
|View from Smith Spring Trail looking east to Midland, Texas|
The flowers and rocks are amazing. This whole mountains were once a coral reef in a Permian sea, 250 MILLION years ago so the rocks are very different as you can see.
|Hamburger sandwich anyone? That is a rock|
I come back last night and find this photo in my email from Dr. Peter taken during the last board meeting I attended at the clinic last October on our way south for winter.
It's supposed to be REAL windy here today with gusts up to 70 mph so we delaying our hiking in high country are bringing in the slides, leaving the RV here and going to Carlsbad caverns for the day.
