Hiking the John Muir Trail

July 27 - Aug 13, 2005

Yosemite Valley to Mt Whitney (and Whitney Portal)

225 miles in 16 Days


The John Muir Trail passes through what many backpackers say is the finest mountain scenery in the United States. This is a land of 13,000-foot and 14,000-foot peaks, of lakes in the thousands, and of canyons and granite cliffs. It's also a land blessed with the mildest, sunniest climate of any major mountain range in the world
