This is my favorite place in Texas. For those of you who have never been to Guadalupe Mountains National Park, PACK YOUR BAGS! It is truly a unique spot in Texas, and in my opinion, the entire country.
This virtual cache requires you to climb Guadalupe Peak, the highest point in Texas at 8749 ft. In order to log the cache you should take a picture of yourself (with your gps if possible) at the summit. If you left your gps at the foot of the mountain don't worry about it! (No old vacation photos or photos downloaded off the internet please.) For park information go to this site.
The peak and surrounding areas are so spectacular that it is one of only four state highpoints designated as National Parks (besides Denali, Mount Rainier and Clingmans Dome). Nearby is Carlsbad Caverns National Park. The Guadalupes are one of the most extensive exposed fossil reef areas in the world. Be sure to log your visit in the logbook placed by National Park Service.
