    I'll be leading a trip to Morocco this summer maybe I should bring some AT stuff with me? Maybe a can of white spray paint and I'll mark some of the trail while we're out there.
    I just don't want to have to carry it.

    So now we know that the actual mountains formed by the Appalachian Orogeny included the Anti-Atlas range in Morrocco (which has some nice 8000+ foot peaks!) as well as the highlands of scotland, but we seem to be ignoring the good 'ol Ouachita Mountains out west.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouachita_Mountains

    Key info: "The Ouachita Mountains are fold mountains like the Appalachian Mountains to the east, and were originally part of that range."

    Looks like another destination for the comprehensive appalachian-range-thru-hiker to include.
