Top of the World

No, you can’t drive your car to get this shot!

You’ve got to hike, climb, hike some more, climb even more, hike even further and then climb down and hike back (6 or 7 hours) just to get this one shot. However, standing on top of the world in the Texas panhandle on a beautiful fall evening makes it all worth while!

Enjoy (and don’t forget to click on the image below for a larger version).

  2. Very nice.. is this the highest spot in Texas? Weird to see so much orange and rather flatness (makes sense if you are highest though). We rarely get a day that clear here (MD). nice work, glad it was worth the hike

    • Anna,

      No, the Haynes Ridge in Caprock Canyons State Park is NOT the highest point in Texas. That honor belongs to Guadalupe Peak at 8749 feet, well beyond the range my poor old back can carry me anymore. 🙂
