Many people don't know the Guadalupe Mountains, because they are in an area of the country that isn't highly populated. West Texas and Eastern New Mexico is an area of the country that many people just don't choose to visit because there isn't much out in the hot dry lands that people believe is worth traveling to. However, the Guadalupe Mountains are like a well-kept secret, because there is majestic beauty to be seen and experienced there. If more people would choose to visit the Guadalupe Mountains National Park they'd realize that although they are located in the middle of the nowhere, the mountains hold some of the most spectacular landscapes anywhere. Of all the places to see some spectacular views, the Guadalupe Mountains are some of the best sightseeing places anywhere.
The Guadalupe mountain peak is eight thousand seven hundred and forty nine feet high at it's peak, and it's a eight and a half mile round trip hike. The hiking is pleasant, beautiful, and simply breathtaking. Although there won't be many people on the trails with you, you'll experience something that the best calendars and postcards are made of. You'll wonder why no one has exposed the Guadalupe Mountains for the spectacular beauty that they are. You'll wonder why you hadn't come sooner, and why you've probably met another person who has visited the mountains. You'll be amazed after just one visit, but then you'll be torn between telling everyone how wonderful it is, and keeping it all to yourself as your own little secret.
The problems with the Guadalupe Mountains is that they are kind of isolated in the middle of nowhere and that is why no one really knows about this beauty. The Guadalupe Mountains are in the Chihuahuan desert and so few people visit because the nearest towns are El Paso, which is over one hundred miles away, and Carlsbad, which is about fifty-five miles away. These are not heavily populated cities, anyway, so the draw of tourists to the area isn't all that great. Unfortunately, the tourists that do come to the area to visit Carlsbad Caverns don't stop to think about the majestic views that are to be had in the Guadalupe Mountains!
The Guadalupe Mountains boast great hiking, as there are many pre-planned trails that hold breathtaking views and amazing foliage. The trails are an opportunity for great exercise, opportunities for awesome picture taking, and just an opportunity to take in some of nature's best views. If you ever have the opportunity to visit this area of the country, think about taking a stop at the Guadalupe Mountains National Park for a day of fun, some awesome opportunities, and something that you haven't ever seen before. A mountain is not just a mountain, every single one is different and while the Guadalupe Mountains may be a well-kept secret, everyone should experience them!
The Guadalupe Mountains offer a lot for just about everyone, so if you like to be out and about in nature, definitely plan a trip to this area.
