Texas/New Mexico 2019

Guadalupe National Park, Texas

Friday, November 8 through Monday, November 11

We drove from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Carlsbad, New Mexico, where we stayed for three nights. Each of the two weekend days, we "commuted" to Guadalupe National Park, across the border in west Texas. We hiked the Devil's Hall Trail on Saturday, and the McKittrick Canyon Trail on Sunday. We returned to Oklahoma in a rather major wind storm on Monday.

I tracked the trip (mostly) with a Bad Elf GPS Pro+ GPSr (GPS receiver). The problems:

NOTE: the downloadable GPX tracks are the full GPX files, while those shown on the provided "view map" links are simplified (with minimal effect on geographic accuracy) for much faster viewing.

Original GPX tracks are unedited, unless otherwise noted. If you wish to poke around in the subfolders, you can find all the GPX files I collected during the trip from the three sources noted above. If they are not in the "ForDisplay" folder, they have not been edited, and may have significant holes, errors, etc.

Businesses are named below for reference only. No endorsement should be inferred.

Topographic maps (1:24,000) are planned for the two hikes, but not available yet.


All tracks are from the Bad Elf GPS Pro+ unless otherwise noted.
