I am planning on starting my second carreer this Spring, so I am thinking of taking a long hike in late Winter while I can afford the time.
I was researching the CDT in New Mexico, and was warned of harsh winds & bitting sand in late Winter to early spring. I ate a lot of sand in the middle east the last 20 years and am done with that mess.
I then started looking into the PCT southern area. I did not find any mention of harsh winds carrying cutting sand and debris. is there anyone out there with some real life experience with the this area in Feb - Apr time frame?
