2014 Lightweight  Resources Handout

Welcome to our website! We love to hike and backpack in the mountain and canyon country of the sunny Southwest.  Over the last few years we have assembled an ultralight backpacking system that works for us, so we decided to share our information on this website so it is readily available.
