All in all, a wonderful trip.
Once I actually unpack, I'll put some pictures up.
LW1 is one of my favorite backcountry campsites in the Chisos. It has everything - shade, views, wildlife and in the evening you can walk down in the grassy meadows and explore around by moonlight. During wet periods you can resupply water from the upper reaches of cattail canyon slightly downhill from LW3 which can sometimes be a flowing stream but is more often dry. You can also follow the ridge behind LW1 and will find trail fragments of a much earlier trail that looks to me like it went down the ridge flanking the basin. This might be what is referred to as the old "Ward Mountain Trail" but it's hard to tell. I have never been more than about 2/3 mile down this ridge but plan to go back someday and explore further. You could make a basecamp at LW1 and go in multiple directions in search of adventure and exploration. TWWG
View from LW1. You can see the remnants of the earlier storm that rained on us behind Pulliam.
