Conquering the four tallest Texas peaks in one day.
By Russell Roe
Fighting exhaustion, we stumbled into camp at midnight after a day of epic hiking, gale-force winds, shredded shins, sore muscles, million-dollar views and four summits to our credit. We had done it. We had hiked the four highest peaks in Texas in a day.

The top 10 bird songs in Texas.
By Cliff Shackelford
I’m a rocker. While in college in the ’80s, I was a long-haired, head-banging rocker. I’m especially fond of power chords and intricate solos played on a six-string guitar, either electric or acoustic. That’s what I like — I guess I was born that way.
My old rocker ears also enjoy the sounds of nature — whether from a frog, a katydid, wind blowing or water flowing — and my favorite nature sounds, by far, are bird vocalizations.
