Texas

Explanation:

[STC001085] Guadalupe Peak in the western portion of Texas has an elevation of 8,751 feet and is known as the “Top of Texas.” The peak is topped with a silver pyramid that was installed there in 1958 to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the Butterfield Overland Mail Trail. The Butterfield Overland Mail Trail was a stagecoach service that once carried passengers and mail just south of the peak before it was disbanded during the Civil War. It is no coincidence that the company that later sponsored the 1958 pyramid, American Airlines, also won the first government contract for airmail between St. Louis and San Francisco. The company that won the first contract for overland mail between St. Louis and San Francisco was also the winner of the first government contract for airmail between the two cities. Be prepared to hike 8.4 miles in the heat of the Chihuahuan Desert with an elevation increase of 3,000 feet to reach the pyramid if you are starting your journey from Pine Springs Campground.
