Entering the Guadalupe High Country

The high country at last.  Thankfully, the wind died down dramatically as we entered the forested slopes toward the end of the day.

"This is NOT a baby bottle.  This my hydration system.  You got a problem with that?"

"Can we camp here? Please?!?"  "Not quite...

...but we can camp here."   This is the Tejas backcountry camp.

There were quite a few mule deer hanging around the camp, obviously accustomed to receiving handouts or leftovers.

This is an abandoned water storage tank from the old ranching days.  They used to pump water through a many-miles-long pipe up into the high country for the cattle.  It's completely dry now.

Making plans...

...but first things first.  Breakfast!
