My brother and I will be traveling from Louisiana & Texas to hike the MRT/ NCT loop in early May. We have no earthly idea of what type of weather to expect or what kind of wildlife that we should expect to encounter. Both of us will be "hanging" formthe trip. Can anyone give us a few tips and what to expect? I know, it's a loooong way for us to travel to hike this loop, but i have a business trip scheduled for th following week and didn't want to miss an opportunity to hike and hang in Michigan!
