In the world according to GORP.

We come for the views, of course, but we also come for the feelings, for the strain of a good, honest climb and the chill of cold wind on hot sweat the moment we take off our packs. We come for the moment a storm clears and a sunbeam pierces the clouds like light in a Renaissance painting. We come for the clean smell of the air and the way it scours our lungs.

GORP’s choices:

Arizona Crest Trail
Colorado Continental Divide Trail
Maine Appalachian Trail
Anaconda Pintlar Wilderness (Montana)
Glacier Peak Wilderness (Washington state)

Wind River Range (Wyoming)
