I'm a late starter. Made my first trip to the Grand Canyon in 2015 at age 57, and have made it back to Arizona/Utah an additional 10 times since then. I love that country...the canyons, the colors, the ruins and rock art. I had never backpacked in my life, but some of the places I wanted to see were too far to day-hike. So far I've only spent 5 nights out in the dirt and have not yet even carried my tent with me. TBH I prefer the comfort of my popup camper and spend most of my nights there, but I'm starting to get more comfortable living out of my pack. I'm looking forward to hearing about your adventures and learning from your experiences.
