I plan to travel here in the next few days for a couple of weeks and I want to change it up as much as possible. I will be solo and would love to get to know the area as this will be my first visit.

I have extensive backpacking gear and wanted to know if there are any good safe back county areas to camp and/or recommended primitive camping site that I can just day hike from.

I am also interested in seeing as much of the area as possible over 10 days, perhaps some type of an indian guide service and visiting the vortexes for a deeper insight of the history and land.

My Spiritually is grounded in realism so I " Like to keep it REAL"

I may be planning to stay overnight "indoors" part of the time just to change it up so I can try some of the restaurants and local shops. I am mainly vegetarian with exception to wild caught fish.

Anyway, I'm super excited and would be very thankful for your recommended options.
