A rare sight: “A partial annular eclipse shot at sunset from the front yard of my house in Amarillo, Texas. I think it’s safe to say that I’ll never see a sunset quite as unique as the one pictured here again.”
Rising like a castle wall above the surrounding desert, the Guadalupe Mountains are an impressive sight on the plains of West Texas. Guadalupe Mountains National Park provides over 80 miles of extraordinary hiking trails through a beautiful and diverse wilderness. Here you can see amazing fossils, take awesome pictures and climb to Guadalupe Peak: the “Top of Texas.” Photo courtesy of Aaron Bates.
