I really enjoyed hiking out to Elephant Tusk several years ago. We camped on a bluff above the creek, which had ample water. It was a quick one-night out and back, but I can see hiking out for a couple of nights and exploring more of the area.
If you're looking for the high Chisos, you're pretty much limited to the sites along the trails, and you need to be at PJ before they open.

I would check out along Old Ore Road. There are some stretches along it where you don't have to go too far to be out of sight and mind. Do some Google Earthing. There is a short trail just south of Ernst Tinaja that will get you into Ernst Basin. Look for places where Tornillo Creek and its drainages are close to OOR. The same is true near Terlingua Abajo and the Terlingua Creek drainages.
Out of curiosity, what were your top 10 primitive spots?~CookieThe top 10 spots were pretty much in Prim campsite close to asphalt... I.e. KBar... Grapevine..Paint Gap..Hannold Draw.. Croton Spring 1 was available.
