While on a church retreat near Angus, NM I took a morning hike to 7,755 foot Buck Mountain. Starting at the retreat center we followed an old jeep trial into the Lincoln National forest. We looped around counter clockwise to the back side of Buck Mountain following a small stream for most of the way before heading up the west side. Once on top we found some Elk tracks and took in the view. We came back down on the

My last trip to the Guadalupe’s was for the sole purpose of instructing a young photography student on Landscape photography techniques. We had the opportunity to hike to Devil’s Hall and drive out to Williams Ranch taking pictures all along the way. But our goal and main purpose of the trip was to photograph El Captain at sunset. Here are a few of the shots we took of El-Capitan. From left to right is Shumard Peak (8615), Gudalupe Peak (8749) and

Just off of hwy 62, about 7.3 miles down a rough jeep road, an old ranch house sits at the foot of Texas’ highest peaks. The blue ranch house with its steeply gabled roof looks somewhat out of place among the open desert landscape. It must have felt out of place, as well, when the builder had the lumber hauled 70 miles by mule from Van Horn, Texas. you can’t help but wonder how hard it must have
