I've written before about car camping, and now that you're an expert car camper (or want to skip a step) you want to try backpacking. I have to say, other than climbing, no outdoor activity seemed as daunting to me as backpacking. But now that I have been once, which definitely qualifies me to write about it, it's clear that backpacking can be pretty easy and fun. This post is to help get you over the initial hurdles that might keep you from trying; it's not to teach you how to backpack, but I will include some links at the end with helpful info.

Recently my family visited from Virginia and wanted to see more of Arizona than we've explored in the past. Over the course of several weeks of planning they devised a route to take us through practically everything a person could want to see in Arizona. Or, at least in Northern Arizona. Seven of us piled into a rented Yukon and drove over 1,000 miles in the next four days. Those miles took us through four states, multiple National Parks/Forest, the Navajo Reservation, and a Sonic drive-in.
Before I tell you about the trip, let me give you a few tips:

El Palacio, one of many indistinguishingly named Mexican restaurants in Kingman, doesn't get a lot of love on Yelp. I mean, they have about 3.5 stars, but by Yelp terms that is a rousing "meh." I have passed over meals here several times for that reason precisely. Tonight, however, I screwed around downtown for long enough that I was starving and it was the closest thing nearby that I hadn't tried yet.
