Thanks, Mule Ears. I'm in my late 20's and am pretty experienced - NOLS grad, bunch of extended backcountry expeditions abroad and domestically (Yosemite, Zion, Joshua Tree, etc.). I'll be traveling with a small group, probably around three friends who are for the most part similarly experienced backpackers. As mentioned, this is all our first time to the park. I think we'll probably have around five days of backcountry time, e.g. we'd be arriving at a trailhead campsite on the night of Sunday the 22nd and would probably want to exit the part around mid-day on Friday the 27th. We'll be making the long drive to Austin afterwards. On that note, any recommendations for a hearty dinner on the way back - or in Austin before we return to the east coast - would be appreciated, as well.
