The Question Box for the State of Texas on 6/23/19

Are their mountains in Texas? Texas has over 2,000 mountains and 12 epic mountain ranges. Mountains hiking and views worthy of exploration include the following:


Big Bend National Park

Located in far west Texas in the Trans-Pecos Region and Big Bend National Park in the Santa Elena Canyon you can observe stunning geological wonders from the Permian Basin to the hot springs of Chinati Mountains. A road trip will take about 1,000 miles of scenic beauty. For an extended visit, visitors can drive through more than a million acres and hike up bluish-purple ridges of four distinct mountain ranges. Take your camera! You don't want to miss an array of exotic cactus, sagebrush, and big rocks. If you like the color purple, you'll fall in love with the vast colors and unique landscape under blue, purple, and pink Texas sky. 


Be sure to take raingear for when the thunder rolls in the desert clouds below you can expect amazing lightning strikes on stormy nights. After the rain, your thirst for fresh air will be satisfactory. 


Franklin Mountains

For rock-climbers you can explore 125 miles of mountainous trails through desert sun and wildlands. If you live in El Paso, you'll experience these mountain views. However, the best views are said to be on the Wyler Aerial Tramway where gondola rides take you up a 2,600-foot-long steel cable where you can view spectacular rock formations at elevations of at least 5,632 feet. Hikers, be sure to take binoculars to see butterflies, birds, and watch out for snakes and spiders!


Guadalupe Mountains

Here you'll discover nearly 47,000 acres of wilderness and beauty that pales to anything you could have imagined. The highest point is 8,750 feet. Sunrise. Sunset. You will know what it feels like to be in another world. The backcountry provides inspiration and magical mysteries. Pressed in your mind will be memories to last for a lifetime. Another peak to conquer is El Capitan soaring 8,064 feet. The touching sky was never so easy! 


Davis Mountains

There is energy in these mountains. Here you will discover boulders and shrubbery lifted out of the earth from volcanic activity. Baldy Peak with elevations of 8,378 feet is tall and proud, just like the original natives of Texas and those mighty men who fought for Texas independence.


Chinati Mountains

Any fan of Western movies can appreciate this area of the mighty Rio Grande diving Texas and Mexico. The highest point stands at 7,728 feet. Narrow bumpy roads and deserts. Oh my! The goal is to reach Chinati Hot Springs to bathe and wash away your tensions and worries. 


Other mountain adventures you can explore include Bush Mountain, Emory Peak, Sierra Blanca, and Chiso Mountain.

Hi Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI, MRP - What a great local post for Texas.  Coming from the Houston area, I remember what flat looks like!  But this reminds me of Pheonix weather versus Sedona weather. People just equate one area with another and those in the know (like you) help teach us!

Hi Patricia... I've been in many parts of Texas many time, but really had no idea until today that you had quite this many mountain ranges.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - Texas has a lot of diversity when it comes to climate and landscaping. I couldn't live in Houston but those that do would probably say they couldn't live in Dallas Fort Worth! Actually, the weather there right now is almost identical to what I'm experiencing now. 

In the Big Bend area of Texas, the climate can vary from hot and dry in summer and fall to freezing cold in winter. There are desert-like climate and plants you'd expect in AZ but then again, it's very close to Mexico. 

I plan to do more Question Box posts in the future. I'm glad you enjoyed it! Have a nice Sunday!

I have not been able to explore much during my trips to Texas, we have always been there for an event, then we left.
