[Cdt-l] PCT vs. CDT - some questions

The big reason I prefer the CDT over the PCT is that the trail varies 
from single track, to FS road, to county rd, to cross country, etc.  I 
also LIKE the fact it's not a single track from Mex to Can.  IMO, 
following a single track 2700 miles, gets monotonous.  I like to use my 
head from time to time.  It tests you.   It's equally as scenic, if not 
more so.

Also, perhaps most importantly, the wildlife on the CDT blows the other 
trails away.  It's incredible.
