ONE OF MY FAVORITE SPOTS ON EARTH (http://inkaclothes.com/werd/open/2007/10/one-of-my-favorite-spots-on-earth.html) her's - not mine...
Camp Mitre Peak (http://www.gspb.org/camping/)

Mitre Peak is a fun climb as well. It's cool being able to see Alpine, Marfa, and Fort Davis from one point, and you realize how close they are to each other.
I actually got stuck up there with my dad and brother when I was about 10 years old (on the way down of course, so at least we summitted). Luckily there were some climbers on the mountain and I was able to rappel off the cliff we were stuck on. As is typical in a small town, we made the front page of the newspaper the next week.
