    New hanger, Las Vegas.

    Just moved to the Vegas area about eight months ago for school (UNLV). I have been backpacking for years but have just gotten into hammock camping. Hung twice so far. Once at the Grand Canyon, and once Great Basin NP. My girlfriend an I backpack together and we both love the hammocks so far. Planning a trip to Yosemite soon, will hang if we can. Any other Vegas hangers about? Any advice on places to backpack with our hammocks would be much appreciated!

    Oh man, I would love to get my gf out here and take her backpacking/hanging in Yosemite! She lives in CO, and has never been there before!

    Also, welcome to the forums, I hope your wallet can take it!

    I may be dumb, but at least I'm ugly!

    I've done so much, with so little, for so long, now I can do anything with nothing.

    It's not peer pressure, it's just your turn.

    Welcome

    Well, I'd say hang anywhere but Vegas area. According to weatherman it's ridiculously hot near you.

    Re: New hanger, Las Vegas.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Backpacking in that heat doesn't sound fun at all. I would head up to Mt Charleston and try to find trees with cooler temps. If you are up for a drive, Zion is just up the freeway a couple miles.
