I just got back (last night) from an almost four-week trip to the southwestern desert area. I was in Zion NP (UT), Valley of Fire SP (NV), Joshua Tree NP (CA) and Death Valley NP (CA) to name the major stops. Much more, including some pictures, later. I'm somewhat swamped with the unloading and clean-up effort right now. Wait until I tell you about the "hurricane" we had in Death Valley. Now I know how tough my PUP is because it sure took a pounding!
