3 Night Chisos Mountain Loop
« on: September 07, 2019, 09:07:21 PM »
Looking to see suggestions on campsites and whether to start from Laguna Meadows or Pinnacles for 3 nights backpacking around the loop. Ive only stayed in Boot Canyon and loved it there.

Would love to hear any suggestions for sites and what the weather might be like for this upcoming weekend. Thank you.

For example, you could stay at LW1, SE1, and then TM1, but there are dozens of combinations, all good ones.

Thank you Flash. We were thinking BL1, SE1 & BC 3. Have you been to Blue Creek? Would you place it over LW?

... and what the weather might be like for this upcoming weekend.

Early to middle of the week - reasonable chance of T-storms.
