It was a very slow haul, up up up the mountains with a head wind. We got 10 MPG and it took nearly 2 hours to go 90 miles. We arrived at the campground and set up. It sure was an out of the way place. Seems Guadalupe National Park is one of the least visited National Parks The campground was snuggled up against El Capitan and the high point for Texas. See Marco down there?
I wanted El Capitan but Lew wanted Devils Hall so we went with Devils Hall. Just a bit up the canyon one could see the pollution in the sky. The visitor's center is monitoring it daily. We have been astonished with the pollution in the West. Its everywhere we go. We think we should see clear crisp mountains, but instead its hazy and not very nice. See where the pink ends? It changes and that along with the thickness is what the visitor's center monitors.
Along the way we see a tree with red leaves! Lew swears they are berries. I had to scramble around until I could see that they were berries. He is right. Its a Texas Malone tree and has fall red berries. Very pretty.
