Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I often visit the American SW desert. How can I contribute by "mapping" areas that are remote and not easily accessible, for everyone to consult if there?

Just map the areas to the best of your abilities. In principle, mapping a remote area is no different from mapping a city. It's just that there are less buildings :-).

There are many well-mapped remote areas in OSM, such as this area in the Auvergne (France). Just map whatever you find interesting, rivers, tracks, forests, local borders, hamlets and isolated buildings etc.

To get you started, see the Beginner's Guide.
