Ascent Trip Report

During week long Spring Break 2014 Family trip to Big Bend (first time to this park), we acquired a backcountry permit to overnight at Pinnacles-1 campsite on the way up to Emory Peak. My son Drake and I backpacked from the Chisos Mountains Lodge area trailhead up to Pinnacles-1 where we pitched camp and took a short rest. Then we hiked to and summited Emory Peak and returned to our campsite. The next morning we backpacked back down to the lodge.
