Mt. Livermore

Centerpiece of the Davis Mountains is Mt. Livermore, named after an early government surveyor. The dramatic volcanic intrusion, sometimes snowy in winter, tops out at 8,378 feet. It's the fifth highest peak in Texas, just less than several adjacent peaks atop the Guadalupe Mountains straddling the Texas-New Mexico border. Those rightfully claim the "highest in Texas."
