5 Great Places To Get Super-Duper High In El Paso On 4/20
April 20 – aka 4/20 – is the official holiday of weed aficionados everywhere. It's a day to celebrate la yerba buena by kicking back at your or your friend’s crib and chilling away your life’s stresses.
And by that I mean smoking trees, blazing a J, toking it up, smoking a bowl, puffin’ the green, sparking it up, rolling some of that sticky icky icky. I think you know what I mean, dontcha pothead?
I’m assuming you’re a dope fiend or you wouldn’t be reading this. My apologies if I misread the room. I couldn’t see through the thick haze of smoke.
Anyway, I won’t make this a TLDR-type thing since the Mary Jane don’t smoke itself.
Here are 5 places to get high in El Paso on 4/20. I mean really, really high. Like super-duper high.
Transmountain Road Picnic Area
An elevation gain of about 2,000 feet with a steep decline and hairpin turns. Maybe do the drive on 4/21.
Murchison Park on Scenic Drive
Murchison Park is the name of the overlook with the iconic tower viewer binoculars that sits at the top of Scenic Drive at an elevation of 4,222 feet. Notable for its majestic view, it’s a great place to watch a sunrise or a sunset.
And to, you know, do other stuff.
The new 20 story building downtown is the tallest building in El Paso. It’s a fancy place so I don’t know if they’ll let you ride all the way to the top. Maybe don’t try it since you’re probably holding and possession is still frowned upon in this red state of ours.
Wells Fargo at 221 N. Kansas
This used to be #1. It actually has one more story, but it’s like 11 feet shorter. Might be more fitting than WestStar on 4/20 being that it’s a high-rise and during Christmas they light it up with a tree design.
Thousand Steps Hiking Trail
You want to get super-duper high? This western access route to Ranger Peak and the moth-balled Wyler Aerial Tramway is it. But it’s also super-duper difficult. Yeah, maybe another time. Or never.
Smoke 'em if you got 'em.
