Guadalupe Mountains National Park

Drove through here on the way to Carlsbad Caverns. Didn’t really know about it until I passed the sign on the road saying I was entering the park. I think the visitors center was just a trailer at that point. The road goes through the park for barely a few miles, and there are no roads in the park. Basically you park, and you hike. We weren’t prepared to hike on this day. I’ll have to go back if I want to see more of this park
