Thats alot of hiking! Sounds like fun. Just counting the days now... :lol:
We're going to Vegas tomorrow,
I'm not saying you should stay in one place. I'm saying, think about why you're moving to another location, and is the move for the night worth the move.
My brother and I will be making our triumphant return to Big Bend National Park on Sunday, February 25th. I'm not sure why our return will be triumphant, I just like saying that. Being the type of person that enjoys planning everything out, here's what I've got so far: (subject to change)Sunday - arrive, camp in Basin campground.Monday - In the morning reserve sites for the rest of the week. Hike up to LM1 (if available), make camp. Spend the rest of the day hiking around the Ward Mtn area.Tuesday - day hike to South rim, spend night at LM1 again OR camp at NE rim. probably camp at LM1 again b/c I know we can get back to the truck really fast from here in the morning. Wednesday - hike back to truck, head to Terlingua Abaja, make camp. Possibly go visit Santa Elena first. Day hike to Bruja Canyon (thanks to okiehiker for the Bruja info).Thursday - Move camp to Croton Spring OR zone camp somewhere in the general area. Probably a long day hike this day, there's a lot I want to see in this area. Haven't really nailed this part of the trip down yet.Friday - either spend another night in the Croton/Slickrock area OR move camp to La Noria on the Old Ore Road. Day hike in this area, then visit the hot spring in the afternoon.Saturday - move camp yet again to Nine Point Draw, long day hike exploring Dog Canyon and Devil's Den. Sunday - long drive home Anyway, that's the plan. Maybe we'll follow it, maybe we won't. Comments/suggestions welcome!
