Shumard Peak

Thanks again to Drew Stuart for sharing this photo of Shumard Peak of Guadalupe Mountains National Park.  The peak is part of the Western Escarpment, which plays an important role in telling the story of the Permian period in North America.  According to the park's website, "these exposures present one of the finest cross sections in the world of the transition from shallow-water to deep-water deposits."  Geology fans, want to learn more?  Click here for the full story.  Thanks again to Drew, one of our dedicated Texas Mountain Trail board members and editor of the Hudspeth County Herald and Dell Valley Review for sharing this photos from around the Dell City area.
