Guadalupe Mountains National Park

4.2
The eponymous range that fills Guadalupe Mountains National Park creates a magnificent break in the barrenness of the surrounding Chihuahuan Desert. The fossil reef from the Permian Era that gave rise to these mountains stands as one of the world's best examples of this type of geological feature. It pushed the park's highest point, Guadalupe Peak, to an elevation of 2,667 m (8,749 ft) and left the distinctive El Capitan with sheer cliffs roughly 300 m (1,000 ft) on three sides. The park's wilderness, which also includes canyons and sand dunes, offers prime hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, and stargazing. It's also home to mule deer, black-tailed rabbits, javelinas (fur-covered wild pigs), and mountain lions. Birders can view 300 or so bird species that either live here full-time or migrate through. Guadalupe Mountains National Park is in Texas (TX).
