This short story tells the tale of the author’s hike to the top of Guadalupe Peak in Guadalupe Mountains National Park in Texas. Guadalupe Peak is the Texas highpoint, or highest naturally occurring geographic point in the state. The elevation is 8,749 feet above sea level. Starting from the campground of the remote and beautiful National Park, the climb was a half-day walking adventure on a beautiful summer’s day in 1995. The hike took place on the return leg of an 8,000-mile vacation that took the author through 23 states. The long cross-country drive he called an Ameritrek and after the first trip he started exploring the United States year after year in other Ameritreks, eventually driving over 100,000 miles. Along the way he visited the highpoints of 45 states. Texas was the second one.
