As I usually do at the start of the thru-hiking season for both the AT and PCT, I'd like to make a plug for my website, http://www.atweather.org. In its third season now, it has become an indispensable tool not just for thru hikers but really for anyone heading out on either of our two amazing long-distance trails. It's simple to use: just select your trail, state and location from the drop down boxes, and the National Weather Service (NOAA) forecast tailored for your location will appear. Getting accurate and reliable weather information is especially important in a year when many parts of the Sierras have over 30 feet of snow on the ground!
Thanks so much for reading, and happy trails!
