Steep Ridge – Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Texas

There’s something very powerful, almost spiritual, about standing at the base of the tallest peak in Texas. I took this shot from the base of Guadalupe Peak at the entrance to Bone Canyon. Standing at 5200 ft, you’d never guess the peak was more than 3000 feet higher.

Man, what a view!

The Punta de la Sierra, (also known as the Pinnacle Mountains), is five miles northeast of the Johnson Ranch in Big Bend National Park in southern Brewster County. This southernmost portion of the Chisos Mountains rises to an elevation of 4,885 feet above sea level but lies just three miles north of the Rio Grande river.
