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.


Did You Know?

Flowers of the desert willow are perfectly formed for the fat, rounded bodies of bees.

The long narrow leaves of the desert willow (Chilopsis linearis) gives it its common name, but it is not a true willow. It is beautiful when in bloom, and provides valuable nectar for hummingbirds, butterflies, bees and other insects.
