A stagecoach route you can drive or mountain bike

Guadalupe Mountains National Park was the site of the historic first meeting of eastern-bound and western-bound Butterfield Overland stagecoach delivering the mail cross-country in 1859.  This photo was taken near that spot on the Williams Ranch Road in the western stretch of the park.  Access to this road is limited, but you can get a key to the gate from the rangers at the visitors center.  Very rough, it is only navigable by 4x4 vehicles and mountain bikes.  The view and the adventure is worth the effort.  Click here to read more!
