Have driven this beautiful highway several times. It is always a pleasure to see these mountains again. The scenery is always different depending of the time of the year.

We have driven by this beautiful area several times .We have visited the McKittrick Canyon and hiked by the trials in the Guadalupe Mountains also several times. One of this times was on Sep 2014, just during rainy season. The area looked as a big lake, is worth a visit.

This section is US-180 through Guadalupe Mountains National Park. To the West/North is the Top of Texas; Guadalupe Peak. More impressive is El Capitan, the southernmost of the peaks.
