    Arizona Trail- 300 mile section hike

    Just finished a 300 mile section hike of the Arizona Trail in my hammock. WOW it was a beautiful trail, the wildflowers were stunning, and I had a blast!

    Hiked southbound from Superior to Mexico (Passages 1-17), and hung in my hammock every night. It was much more difficult to hang than it was on the PCT last year (i.e. compared to SoCal).

    Wrote up some advice to fellow hammock hangers curious about the Arizona Trail on my blog.

    Also, please feel free to message or email me if you have any questions about the Arizona Trail!

    Another long distance goal accomplished ! Well done Joan.
    Flexibility & thinking outside the square will have you hanging almost anywhere....
    Mountain views are good for the soul....& getting to them is good for my waistline.

    The creative hangs get addicting. Fun to be able to hang practically anywhere.
