GUMO General Discussion / Re: 100 mile long Guadalupe Ridge Trail
« Last post by wrangler88 on Today at 01:08:08 AM »
Thanks for posting the article. Made for some great late night reading. And the pictures were great also.

Was just daydreaming of the Guadalupes as I often do when I came across this. Just what I needed. What an amazing place.

Start at midnight or so with a light pack. Arrive at the point at an hour before sunrise. Hang around take pics til 930 or so. Head back be at car at 3pm. Youíll have no sun on way to point and itíll be at your back on the way out

Once you get past the Sinkhole/Three Sisters there will be no shade.

I'd add some of the tinajas to that list, and maybe the Sinkhole. At certain times of day, a little exploration of those may reveal shady places to take a break and have a snack, and maybe even draw a little water (none in the Sinkhole).

About the best you're going to find is occasional shade under ledges.  When you cross a watercourse, follow it up or down.  There are some shaded areas under some ledges.  De-pack and lean against the cool rock walls.

Some amazing shots, wish I could have been there to see it!  Nothing like a wet year to bring them out.

Hiking the Desert / MdA Shade Spots?
« Last post by Texasdave21 on March 19, 2019, 07:41:55 PM »
I know there is not much shade at MdA, would anyone have a map with any shade break/lunch spots or at least an idea along the trail to the point?

Thank You!

The entire High Chisos is a point of interest  ;)  Walk slowly. Stop. Look around.   :great:
