Re: [John Muir Trail] Footwear - heavier vs lighter
- I should add one more advantage I perceive about boots.
With boots and trekking poles I find that I have to watch the trail
less intently. I glance down at it every few seconds, but my eyes
tend mostly to be scanning the middle and far distance.
With just shoes on rough ground, I find myself being required to watch
the trail footing more carefully and I think I tend to miss animal
sightings, wildflowers and the wonderful long views.
