Hey everyone, we are planning our first trip in April. I wanted to see if you thought this was a reasonable plan, or if there is anything else we should know. We will be car-camping and moving our way throughout the park.Day 1 - Arrive around 9am in Terlingua. Rent a kayak and drive down to Santa Elena Canyon and do the upstream 'boomerang trip'. Drive back to Terilingua, and grab a bite to eat and explore the town before returning to our campsite (TBD).Day 2 - Set up camp in the Basin, hike Grapevine Hills and either the Lost Mine or Pine Canyon.Day 3 - Hike the South Rim + Emory. Get an 8am start.Day 4 - Head to the Hot Springs. Cross into Boquillas for some lunch. Camp at or around Ernst Tinaja that night.
Day 4, that shouldn't be a problem. Bring your passport and high clearance vehicle (truck or SUV will do) for Ernst.
