John Muir Trail

Following a few years of talking about it and quite a few months of planning, my Dad and I are finally hitting the John Muir Trail through the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. Tomorrow, we'll start backpacking towards Mt. Whitney, summit it on day 4, cover 40,000 ft of elevation change and 250 miles in 25 days, and then finish in Yosemite Valley on August 27th. While we won't have cell access from the time we start the trail until we finish, I'll be writing about the experience and will post it here after the fact. Wish us luck, keep us in your prayers (especially given the CA wildfires), and see you in 25 days!
