A week of hiking, backpacking, and camping near Los Alamos. Three NPS units, a national forest, craft beer, and some delicious New Mexico cuisine.
Some time spent in southern New Mexico with the thru-hiker tribe. I also took in a visit to the nearby Gila Cliff Dwellings.
Why basic hygiene in the backcountry is good for you, your health, your gear, fellow outdoor users, and the people in town.
Clothing and some gear I’ve been using since October in the desert or desert-like environments.

Further exploration of some areas both new to me and some old favorites.
Some hiking and backpacking in the Moab area. My friend Joan will soon be leaving the Moab area, so one last trip (for now!) had to be done.
The potential plans for the next few months.

Just a few days of enjoying basecamp in Bears Ears. I hiked, I read, I scrambled up the cliffs and just took in the views for hours at a time. Why? Because I can. 🙂
