Ascent Trip Report

My third ascent of Texas' highpoint reflecting the fact that my parents have lived in Texas for nearly 20 years. Each time we've stayed the night before in a hotel in Carlsbad, NM. First time was with my wife as part of a 6-week tour of Western USA & Canada before we had any children; second-time was with my older 2 boys; finally the whole family's done it now. I love Texas & particularly west of the Pecos but next time I'll climb a different 8,000-footer!
