El Capitan above the Salt Flat

We send our thanks to Val Provencio of El Paso for this lovely shot of the Guadalupe Mountain National Park's El Capitan.

In the foreground, is the white salt left as a remnant of an ancient shallow lake. The National Park has a great page on their website, all about the Salt Flat and the Salt War of 1877. Click here to go to that page.

The national park is a great place to visit on vacation, especially if you like to hike and enjoy a private wilderness experience. For more information on hiking in the region, visit our hiking page,
