    That is a bit much coming from someone located in Lewiston (the other "LA").

    I would argue that the ten or so miles From Sages Ravine in CT to Jug End in Southern Mass is one of the most scenic sections of trail in all of southern new england.

    I wish I could tell you, but I've only done as far as Grelylock. Hoping to finish MA and do about half of VT this summer...emphasis on Hoping.

    Personally I found Southern NY to be especially hard, mostly because the topo/profile maps make it look so deceptively easy.

    More than one word per state-
    Georgia-beer goggles-hello beautiful
    NC-Hangover- this is harder than I thought
    TN-soakies soaked me
    VA- L-o-n-g (and sometimes boring) Hello cheeseburgers in the Shennies *** with the roller coaster
    WV halfway yay! or - only HALFWAY????
    MD- easy easy- flat tent spots and did I mention easy
    PA- 2/3 easy and beautiful and 1/3 REALLY annoying-enough to make you forget the easy-gigantic berries on the superfund site make you glow-beds with crabs (Doyle)
    NJ- surprisingly beautiful (not like in the Sopranos)
    NY- very dry! No water or yellow water- beautiful- worst pizza on the AT (sorry) taxis in the most unlikely places as well as unlikely zoos
    CT- sprained ankles slippery rocks trudgery (I know thats not a word)
    VT- beautiful- surprisingly easy- great beer and burger stop at the Inn-lightning strike
    NH-beautiful but stuck up
    Maine- Gorgeous, hard in a fun way, lush, fragrant, rugged, the grand finale for a reason, redemption.

    Okay, I had told myself to stop replying because I'm posting too much in this thread, but where the heck did you get terrible pizza in NY? Are you basing this on one bad place, or do you just not appreciate NY pizza?

    Ha! Just one place. But the only place I had pizza in New York. The pizza was really built up so I had high expectations. Same town as the zoo. I don't know if it is customary in New York to put a layer of heavy basil on top of the cheese- but thats what I got and it was meh.

    Probably just the one place, NY pizza is usually great...though in my opinion (and that of food critics) some CT pizza is better.

    I live 25 minutes from Pepe's, Sally's, and Modern. I live 15 From Roseland in Derby. If you've never tried Roseland I suggest you do, it never makes the national rankings but the food is just as good. Get the "grated red" pizza for starters. Unfriendly oldschool Italian service? check. Non-conforming building in a residential neighborhood? check. Amazing coal (wood?) fired pizza that burns the pizza half the time because that's the way it's supposed to be? Check!!! I would have recommend their Gnocchi, but I think they stopped making it when the matriarch of the family retired.

    I'm curious to know what "deceiving" means? I've found CT (not my original home state, but my current home state) to be surprisingly diverse on the AT. You can see a little bit of everything in just 50 or so miles.
