John Muir Trail: 2011

The John Muir Trail travels 200+ miles from Yosemite National Park to Mount Whitney, the highest point in the contiguous United States.  The route includes an abundance of spectacular high sierra scenery including 11 mountain passes, numerous lakes, and valleys.  This was my first 100+ mile hike.  My good friends Josh and Austin joined me. Below is Austin's video footage from where he joined us at Vermillion Valley Resort.
