Man are we off topic or what
I've hung hammocks throughout the desert southwest.
In states like Utah, Arizona, New Mexico if you go high enough
there are plenty of trees. In many places in Cali too....couple of
places through me a loop-Death Valley was one...but if I'd planned
ahead and took some of the climbing gear, specifically chocks and wedges
there were enough canyon walls close enough to find a crack.
Hey, I've even hung between a telephone pole and guy-wire
Another place we hung successfully is Alaska, even in Katmai Nat. Park
and you know what's all over that place.
Only area where there was no way was in the Kaktovik area....that would
have been a death wish.
