|A parking lot is pretty much a parking lot.|
|Good to know!|
|These are the hardest trails, there are some easier ones a little further in.|
Not feeling up to an 8.4 mile round-trip I took the easier Frijole trail which initially skirted a giant rock field.
|This thing ran for a lot longer than just this view.|
The trails were always well marked when merging or diverging with other trails so it was easy to find your way.
|The Tejas trail started climbing pretty quickly so I stayed on Frijole.|
Here's a sample of what you hike on:
|The Forest Service trims back cacti that impinge on the trails.|
I drank all my water on the outward leg of the Frijole trail (the climate is really arid) so I headed back to the Mini for about a two hour session, but I'll definitely come back to Guadalupe Mountains National Park to try some of the other trails, maybe even a tough one!
|There were some young guys geared up to climb this!|
