view of El Capitan from Guadalupe Peak, May 2004|
"Signal Peak and El Capitan are loosely used as names of the
face or bluff of the mountain. This is the part so popular with photographers.
Guadalupe Peak, which is about a mile to the north is higher than El Capitan.
Guadalupe Peak is the highest point in Texas. It is less than 8 miles from the
New Mexico stateline.
Hiking from Guadalupe Peak to El Capitan is a challenge.
I've done it once. No trail, just tall grass. The wind made every rustle sound
like a rattlesnake." - Barclay
