Last September, not long before Christina and I moved from Texas, we drove west and backpacked to the highest point of the Lone Star State. This photograph was taken near our campsite along the trail about a mile shy of Guadalupe Peak (8,749 feet) in Guadalupe Mountains National Park. It was a 4.25-mile hike to the top with a 3,000-foot elevation gain, and I was silly enough to carry my film camera along with my pack and three gallons of water. And just to prove we didn’t quit before getting to the top, below is a photo of Christina at the peak. (It was her first backpacking trip, and it was a challenging one. I was proud of her.)
