  1. I just read another AT memoir this week by Jeff Alt and most of his memories are of people too. I’m not big on generalizations, but I think the social experience is a big part of thru-hiking but far less so for section hikers.

  2. I can see your point there, but I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing. I find on shorter hikes I’m more interested in the scenery than the people. Both become major parts of my hiking experience. And both make me want to come back for more of each. It’s a good bunch of people, but we wouldn’t be out there together if not for the wilderness aspect.
