“The route passes through the high plains and the high desert. Keep in mind that buildings out here had to be built with the natural materials that were available. That means rocks. Tall trees are not common. Because of this I wouldn’t recommend a hammock set-up.
Winds can whip up in a heart beat if a storm is rolling in. Black biting flies, gnats, and ground ants can be a problem depending on where you’re camping and what the weather has been.”
