We inaugurated our camping gear on a trip to Guadalupe Mountains. Home to the highest peak in Texas, two national parks and cool summer nights, the region promised a great Labor Day Weekend escape.
The contrast between Rocky Mountain National Park and its neighbors Arches and Canyonlands is striking. Snow-covered peaks and alpine lakes make way for desert vistas and colorful rock formations on the stunning 300-mile drive between Colorado and Utah.
