Through All Seasons

Given the park's location at the leading edge of the Chihuahuan Desert, one might think that there are only two seasons here - wind and hot, but in actuality, each changing season lends a beauty all its own and creates stunning vistas all year long.

 

High Country Scenery

Guadalupe Mountains National Park features the highest peaks in the state of Texas and provides scenery not typically associated with the arid deserts of the Trans Pecos region. Enjoy views from the high-country trails of the park.

Hummingbirds are often described as "flying jewels" – for good reason. Most males have feathers in their gorgets which shine with a rich, jewel-like iridescence when light hits them. Guadalupe Mountains National Park is host to at least 8 species of hummingbirds, 4 of which are known to nest here.
