Otter's Hiking and Camping Page

Otter loves the American Southwest. Hiking and camping in the desert are my favorite things to do, and I do them as often as possible. Here are some of the places I've been.

Death Valley National Park

I've loved this place since I was a little kid, and have been coming here, as an adult, since about 1991. In 2004, I put my foot down and said, I'm coming back every 18 months forever. Then I retired, and now I can go whenever I want. Which, in 2017, was FIVE TIMES. What fun! The link takes you to the page where you can see the pictures and stories from every trip I've taken there since 2004.

2015: a solo trip through Southern Utah

2016: camping across southern Arizona with two of my buddies.
