Hiking. Friday , April 27th , 2018 - 22:05:49 PM
We carried ice axes but after the first couple of passes they were used mostly for digging cat holes. The sun cups were one of the biggest problems along with post holing in the soft snow in the afternoons. Almost everyone used trail running shoes except the Europeans who wore mountaineering boots. We had wet feet the whole way through the Sierras from the snow and river crossings and much of Washington from the rain and new snow but surprisingly it wasn‘t much of a problem. We did get tired of the snow and needing to be constantly on the search for the trail. I would like to go back and hike the John Muir Trail (most of which is the same as the PCT) in the fall when you can actually walk on the trail.
So you want to go hiking and therefore you need to understand what hiking gear you will need to take with you. The stores are full of lots of gear for hiking that they want to sell you. However here are the main things you need to consider when deciding what hiking gear you need.
When you talk about hiking it does not mean you have to go for something as outlandish or extreme as the Appalachian Trail. It can be as simple as taking a walk through a forest or up a hill in your neighborhood‘s vicinity. For the most part hiking will cost you nothing to very little and is a great stress reliever. Indeed the mental and physical benefits you can get from hiking ensure you can live a more fruitful and fulfilled life.
