John Muir Trail: Summer 2018

In December of 2016 I decided I wanted to make a go at hiking the JMT…. however, not until the summer of 2018. This will be the longest hike I have been on to date, both in miles and in days spent on the trail. So, if all goes as planned, come July 4th, 2018, my buddy Craig Smith, and Benny Braden and his son will be joining my son & I for a 20 day hike beginning at Cottonwood Lakes/Horseshoe Meadow and hiking some 260 miles to Yosemite Valley… Crossing my fingers…

Until then, I have a lot of planning to do… so this is where it begins…
