While the consensus was not to try to split this thread, I did take the liberty of editing the original title so that both topics addressed here are included in the thread title. I hope that's OK with the OP!

This thread is becoming an excellent repository for info on the Arizona Trail, and I'd hate to see it ignored because it isn't in the title! On the other hand, the info on the JMT in winter is also important!
