Brought Tío Alvaro along, hiked to the highest point in Texas! Saw strange hummingbird moths, butterflies, etc. Fog, rain, and a rainbow at the end!

3000ft elevation gain. Worth it. First 2 miles inclines a lot, then flattens a bit for about a mile before hitting switch backs and inclining more.

Felt the elevation in this one! Very steady uphill to the top of the peak, and herd in the feet and knees going down. Sunny & warm at the top for lunc

many things wrong in the description. Round trip mileage is 8.4 miles, not 15. $5 is only for a Backcountry permit, but you'll need to pay a $7 ent…
