John Muir Trail

Muir Pass View North on the JMT

I crossed the famous Muir Pass at 11,980 on Day 11 of my 21-days backpacking trip on the John Muir Trail in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act. I started in Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite on July 7 and summited Mt. Whitney on July 27. It was tough climbing all those high passes. With sun, rain, fire, and snow along the way. I was inspired by the many passionate and friendly fellow backpackers I met on the trail. See more of my story and photos here.
