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, www.texasmountaintrail.com/hike
