Guadalupe Mountains NPSeptember 8 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 75 °F
It was a bit chilly in the morning in Cloudcroft and I decided I might be ready for warmer weather.. I haven't been to the Guadalupe Mtns in about 30 years so I decided I should see them again. The scenery on the drive was very flat and empty, no trees, no hills, just nothing. Then suddenly there are these beautiful mountains.
I'm not sure what the elevation is here; or if it is just the change in temperature but the little hike I took felt 3 times longer than it was. No way I could hike up to the peak even if I started first thing in the morning. But it isbeautiful and I would like to try it when it's cooler, maybe in the fall.
Maybe the SKUNKS and BITTING FLIES will be dormant in the cooler weather.Read more
