Is May too cold to tent camp on the WHW?
A friend and I are interested on a through hike of the WHW in May and we are wondering if it is too cold to tent camp. We have done a week of cabin camping with no electric or heat in 4 degrees C weather before but that was in dry conditions. I am trying to find out how cold it gets at night in May, how much rain you get in May, and if it's too cold or wet for tent camping (for a couple of campers who don't have a whole lot of tent camping experience.)
