The suggestion to reach the South Rim on the last day sounds awesome, but I'm not sure if I could cache water if I go counter-clockwise on the route. I had been planning to carry 8 L with me and cache 4 L at Homer Wilson for the last day. Caching 4 L at the Juniper Canyon/Dodson Junction would be ideal but I'll be using a economy- class rental car and I'm unsure if it could handle the back roads. Are those roads in such bad shape a Fiesta couldn't make it out there? As of right now I'm planning to hike up Emory peak, starting from the Chisos Basin TH, and take the SE and NE Rim Trails on the first day. Hopefully I'll be able to secure one of the NE rim campsites (#1 would be the best).Thanks again for the advice and keep it coming if you have some more!
