Well, it was the AT, so there is nothing to see but trees, from Georgia to Maine. However, there four times when I really like the AT:azbackpackr wrote:Wonder if he saw anything...?
Really and truly, the AT is remarkably uniform in flora and terrain over most of its length. I've hiked on sections in every state but CT and WV. I've hiked multiple seasons in GA, TN, NC, VA, PA, NJ, NY, and VT. It does change a fair bit in Vermont, but up to then it's all about the same. That's why AT hikers tend to go on about the Green Tunnel and the Pointless Ups and Downs. I think it's also why hiking the AT tends to be more about the social aspect or the milestone accomplishment than the other long trails.chumley wrote:@big_load
I don't know anything about the AT, but except for your #4, I would think the other three are highly variable based on just exactly where you are. 2200 miles offers a few different things to see I would imagine? Maybe you're just talking about the New Jersey part? Are there blueberries in Jersey?
