Thanks all for the detailed and honest feedback. So, I think unless there's are colder than normal temperatures at that time, I'm likely to not do it. I'm up for a challenge, but am not interested in being miserable--and it sounds like it could be.So, are there recommendations for other multi-day backpacking routes?
Thanks I'll look into the High Chisos.I'll maybe keep OML on the backburner, depending on the forecast...what would be temps that would make it doable? I have hiked in a lot in New Mexico in the summers, during hot days, but, as I've said, I've never been to Big Bend, and so don't want to overestimate similarities of past experiences.Also--with water, is it recommended to carry in everything? That seems like it would make a pack incredibly heavy, unless caching. If purifying, where online could I check to see if water exists in various locations prior to my trip? I'd assume some locations dry out.
Thanks again for feedback! Sounds like Chisos is a good option to focus on unless we have colder than normal temps that week.Are there any 3-4 day routes there that people typically take in the Chisos?
