Ascent Trip Report

Followed Guadelupe Peak Trail from the camping area of Guadelupe National Park. $5 entry fee to park for adults. Thunderstorms heard off in the distance in New Mexico. A calm day at the bottom, breeze was whipping pretty good at several points near the top. A pyramid monument dedicated to the USPS and aviation is located on top. At the base of the pyramid was a log book placed inside an ammo can to sign in as having made it to the top. Beautiful views across Texas, and especially overlooking El Capitan.
