John Muir Trail

I’ve hiked the John Muir Trail solo twice.  I’d do it every year if I could.

These photos are from my second trip, in 2009.  I lightened my load significantly this time, save for two vices: my binoculars and John Muir Laws’ Field Guide to the Sierra Nevada.  They were worth every ounce.
