[cdt-l] Favorite couple hundred mile stretch?

I must vote for the section south of Stony Pass.  All high cairn to 
cairn wandering, and little lakes for water.  Then, rather than heading 
left and around Hunchback Mountain, take the trail that heads straight 
up, and traverses the peak's lower slopes, and then the 1000' plunge to 
Vallecitos Lake.  The trail off the CDT to Vallecitos Lake is little 
used, unmaintained, and hidden.  It's there, if you're coming from the 
south, but hard to see.  I don't think its on any maps.  It is a 
quintessential high alpine lake and really no people...
