I'm looking for ideas for a solo backpacking trip in mid-March lasting 3 or 4 nights in the US. What I'm looking for is somewhere reasonably remote and don't mind some climbing but would rather not be doing it all day.
Most importantly after spending a Canadian winter (mostly indoors) I'll be looking to go somewhere reasonably warm (40F nights?) and not having to trek through deep snow. 6 or 7 hours per day on the trail is what I was thinking and have no problem with a trip that involves significant bushwhacking.
For some reason I've thought the the US South West might be a possibility since I've never been there but that's flexible.
Most importantly is being able to hang each night.
I'd appreciate whatever suggestions you are willing to give.
Thanks in advance,
