Re: [pct-l] greetings
I haven't hiked the AT but the people I've talked with who have done both the
AT and the PCT sure agree they're different! Which is "better" or "harder"?
I don't think I want to start that argument up again. The AT is steeper but
the PCT is higher. You have a chore gaining elevation on either. Cold and
windy describes both, at times and places. The PCT desert stretches can be
hotter, but not nearly so humid as the AT. I love the high mountains but am
told the fall colors in the Northeast are not to be missed. I guess you'll
have to do both and decide for yourself. Good luck!
You may want to take a look at some of the pictures on our web site. They
show the variety of country my son and I hiked through on the PCT last year.
There's a link from the PCTA web page. Again, best wishes! -- TrailDad
