My name is David “Wazo” Smith. I live in Phoenix in a high rise, 22 floors up - not exactly backcountry. I love hiking, backpacking, camping, and bicycling. I’ve backpacked in a lot of great places - the Annapurna region of Nepal, Denali NP, Cotswold Way in the UK, the French portion of El Camino (Le Chemin de Compostelle / GR65), Canadian Rockies. However, my favorite trail remains the AT. I love thé Eastern Forest and the AT Trail culture. For more of me, you can checkout my blog, primarily pics, at wazohikes.blogger.com or on IG @wazohikes I can be reached at [email protected].
