Humans have frequented the Guadalupe Mountains for over 10,000 years, from early hunter-gatherers, settlers, and military, to entrepreneurs, ranchers, geologists, and conservationists.

But for many, the historic structures, ruins, remnants, and written record vividly recount their existence in this majestic landscape.
