"Must do" hike lists
Desparately trying to avoid doing work here in the wind down to another hiking weekend. Wondering how prevalent "must do" hike lists are in this group, or is this just the domain of hiking obsessive-compulsives like myself? Anybody out there have any number one most wanted hikes? Very curious!
For reference, my most wanted is a 6-8 day loop through Kanab Creek and Deer Creek, in the Grand Canyon area. All of my top ten are in the canyon country. In BC, the northwest coast of Graham Island in the Charlottes and Limestone Lakes in the Rockies are my most wanted. Wadi Mujib (a jordanian slot canyon) and Guelta Archeii (Chad) for international.
Oh but the desert is glorious now
With marching clouds in the blue sky
And cool winds blowing.
The smell of sage is sweet in my nostrils
And the luring trail leads onwards
