Guadalupe Mountains National Park

Another morning of schoolwork while Shannon fixed the driver's side rv window. In the afternoon we watched a short overview film at the Guadalupe Mountains National Park Visitors Center before walking the easy Piney Trail.

Guadalupe Peak (on the right) The highest mountain in Texas.
El Capitan (on the left) Sentinal of the Chihuahuan Desert.

Drove to another trailhead that wound around past Manzanita Spring up to Smith Spring. 2.3 mile loop.
This family grew an orchard & vegetables and would pack the produce
in wagons & drive all night to sell in the morning at town.
