For those who have hiked the whole CDT, I am
interested in getting a succinct list of regions of
the CDT that you consider to be more of a "desert"
environment, places where high heat and lack of
water/shade would be an issue. Roughly, places where
I can expect to see sagebrush and/or cactus. I'm
planning to use this for a rough gauge of where to
plan to send certain items of gear I prefer to have in
drier, hotter areas.
>From studying guidebooks and maps, I am thinking that
there are three major hot/desert regions:
1. All of NM except the extreme northern 50-70 miles
2. Great Basin of Wyoming
3. Southern half of MT in parts
Is this accurate?
Thanks in advance,
