Trip to Austin - The Guadalupe Mountains

Yet another unexpected, beautiful sight. The Guadalupe mountain range is part of the National Park system. El Capitan rose slowly into view as we traveled easy on Interstate 10. At 8,749 feet, it's the highest point in Texas. The range is actually a huge, Permian-era limestone reef - anywhere from 230 to 290 million years ago.
