Oh, good! But you didn't follow one of the above routes?
I've done a bit of research, trying to get aquainted with the area the above two trails pass through. The TransAm Trail is completely cycle-orientated, whereas the AmDiscovery Trail seems to be partly, esp. in the west, rather more a hiking trail. Not that the altitudes are scary (over 12,000ft), but the track surface in parts would mean to push or even carry the bike
The landscape should be absolutely stunning though!
Anybody done the ADT in the area of the Great Divide?
Only when we pause to wonder
do we go beyond the limits of our little lives.
