Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
What if you could climb a mountain so high that it offered views of another mountain range nearly 150 miles away? That is exactly the kind of bucket list nature experience waiting for you at Guadalupe Mountains National Park. A desolate place in the far West Texas desert, this rugged oasis is the proud home of Guadalupe Peak, Texas’ highest mountain. When you reach the summit, you can see all the way to the Davis Mountains!
