Troop 77's intrepid backpackers just before starting the 4 mile, 2500 foot descent down the Tejas Trail from the Guadalupe Mountains high country to the Pine Springs visitor center.
"C'mon Paul, don't just sit there. Let's go!" :-)
"We're going down THERE?"
A fantastic rock outcropping points to Guadalupe Peak.
Pine Springs finally in view.
Looking across at the trail that starts up Guadalupe Peak.
Look closely. There are several mule deer in the shadows.
"You mean our break is over ALREADY?!?"
Fifteen miles. Oh, my aching feet!
