At the Tip Top






What's this? Why the very tippity-tip of Mt. Livermore, the 5th highest peak in Texas known as Baldy Peak. Since 97 percent of Texas is privately-held land, you're in luck with Baldy-- the land is owned by the Nature Conservancy and they have open house days that allow guests to explore their small part of the Davis Mountains.

Interesting fact: Baldy Peak was the location of a very sacred site to the Livermore people and they buried almost 2,000 arrowheads there as offerings. Read the whole story in Texas Monthly, written by F.t Davis Historian Lonn Taylor.

Here's a view once you get to the top of Baldy:
