That's Emory Peak just to the right of the branches of the tree on the left.
Emory Peak, the highest point in the park (7,825 ft) is one of the big ones. Our route starts at the campground on the Visitor Center trail (0.5 miles) then the Basin View trail to the Pinnacles Trail to the Emory Peak trail (5.3 miles) for an 11.6 mile round trip hike.
The trail is in great shape and while it is relentlessly uphill for the entire hike, very little of it is steep. Mostly just a steady uphill climb.
The Beautiful Texas Madrone. The Madrone tree sheds it's red bark periodically as it grows
The ubiquitous southwestern lizard, commonly referred to as a "Blue Belly", Note the belly of the lizard just visible in the lower right of the picture.
Yuccas in bloom on the basin rim.
Unusual rock seen along the trail.

Of course the problem with any 5.8 mile hike to a fantastic peak is you still have a 5,8 mile hike back down when you are done. When we get down, we will head south to the Rio Grande Village area of the park and some hikes along the Rio Grande.
