Photo Details

  • Title: West Texas Oasis - Guadalupe Mountains
  • State/Province/Region (required): Texas
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Area: Carlsbad, New Mexico
  • Nearest Town: Pine Springs, Texas
  • Description: Texas has such diverse landscapes! But you think of West Texas and that arid mesquite bush and cactus come to mind. But I found a tropical oasis in the Guadalupe Mountain National Park. Well developed trails invite anyone with a will down their path. Yeah, you see sunset pictures of El Capitan and the great RED mountain all the time. But can you imagine this photo was taken in a canyon just north of El Capitan a few miles! Lush vegetation, spring flowers, abundant wildlife (I even caught a picture of a red or gray squirrel munching on a cactus bloom!)
  • Brief Directions: Smith Springs trail at Guadalupe Mountain National Park truly boasts some treasures along the trail.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Gear: Canon EOS 20D
