We closed out 200 miles on the John Muir Trail yesterday at Whitney Portal. The trip was awesome and I’ll be putting together a video in the upcoming weeks. I posted a ton of pictures below but no detail. At a high level: It rained the first two days but after that only sunshine; we met and hiked with another hiker named Chris (trail name: Grover) – he is a 5x Appalachian Trail thru hiker; there was some snow that made pass crossing interesting; the streams were swollen but passable; CW did great but got his butt kicked on a few of the longer days; we got our permit the morning we got there; we spent 14 days and 13 nights on the trail…. lots more in the video.
A preview in no particular order:
