Tired of Old Mountains? Try the New Ones!

CBS News has put an Associated Press story on its web site on 4 January 2012 that it is headlining "Like walking? Try the Himalayan range, all of it."

It describes a developing tourism and hiking opportunity: "the Great Himalaya Trail, is being touted as an epic, untapped alternative to the bucket-list trek to base camp on the world's highest mountain."

The comparison point is that "Granted, the Great Himalaya Trail lacks the history and utility of the Silk Road, the ancient trade network that linked Asia to Europe, or the cohesion and accessibility of the Appalachian Trail for hikers in the United States."

That's us: cohesive and accessible!
