My friend has invited me to hike the GC with her and friends the weekend of Nov 18. I, being broke after finishing a thru hike, am intrigued but wasn't sure how to do this. Then I saw that I could use my frequent flier miles, and there was availability into Flagstaff on the 11th. THEN I realized, well, heck, I could just walk to the GC from Flagstaff.
My question is of course about conditions. Looks like we're over 9000 feet for part of it. What are the chances of storms and what conditions/temps in general are we talking about. What sort of likelihood of snow is there and what sort of equipment would be needed- ie a dusting? couple inches? feet? Of course will have to play it by ear but just looking for general ideas here. I am a fairly experienced backpacker with a PCT and AT thrus. Thanks! The AZT sounds super awesome.
