Guadalupe Peak spaceport?

Now THIS could make for a truly interesting sight from the summit of Guadalupe Peak - a rocket launch!

A company founded by Jeff Bezos, of Amazon.com fame, is building a spaceport for sub-orbital flights about 35 miles (my calculations) south of Guadalupe Peak:

I just have to time a re-visit to the TX highpoint for one of their launches!
