Tuesday, August 1 –
Because we thought we hadn’t walked enough the day before, we drove about 45 miles south to the northern end of the Guadalupe Mountains and hiked up Mckittrick Canyon. It’s part of the large Guadalupe State Park. It took us most of the day to hike from the trail head to the McKittrick rim and back. We took our time and stopped to rest and take plenty of pictures.
Stairway cut through solid rock on the ascent to the rim.
It was a beautiful hike and we were so fortunate to have a cool overcast day. We drove back to Northfield that night. We were very tired.
