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!
