Hello my friends. I am new to this community. I do much of the backpacking across the desert southwest in AZ, UT & NM (mostly AZ). Have been a member of HAZ (hike arizona) for a long time and am a frequent contributor there, but I have gotten a lot of good trip information from here on backcountrypost in the past - particularly about Utah. I thought I'd finally make an account so that I can share my trip reports as well as ask around for trip planning advice. You all seem like a knowledgeable and friendly bunch of folks.
