Traces Posted January 8 Share Posted January 8 I have been fortunate to be in the Guadalupes during many violent, powerfully beautiful meteorological events. On this day I was driving from El Paso back to my campsite in the mountains when I was waylaid by a violent thunderstorm, such that I had to pull over. Incredible lighting strikes all around. Waited about 20 minutes then drove on. 20 minutes down the road, this was the view of clouds scuttling far below the mountains. That's Guadalupe Peak, the highest point in Texas, just to the left of El Capitan, a rock wall so tall and sheer that some of the earliest travelers reported seeing it for days before finally getting past it. I was alone out there and glad to be alive. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
