ridges and highlands.

This page is intended to give the hiker (that be you) a general idea of the topography you'll encounter while hiking on the trail. If you are a Thru Hiker or a long Section Hiker, this information will give you a general idea of what is up ahead. I realize that some long hikers don't need or want this level of detail (that be me). If there is a 5000' climb coming up tomorrow I sure don't want to know about it a week in advance!! Please just surprise me :)

My thought is that this page may help Section Hikers and Day hikers pick out sections that appeal to what they are in the mood to see that day or weekend. There is a huge difference between the Ridges and Highlands. The most obvious is that ridges have Sky and no water and highlands have water and no sky (generally speaking : ) Both are stunning in their own ways.
