This year for my dad's birthday, we decided to get away and head West to El Paso for UTEP's homecoming/alumni weekend. We has the pleasure of backpacking North Mt. Franklin, watch UTEP whuppup on Rice and then backpack the highest point in Texas, Guadalupe Peak.
My dad played linebacker for UTEP (then Texas Western) -- and he's still got pep in hi step (he reached Guadalupe peak before me!).
