I promised to put out a blog about my two sons, Paul and Christian, hiking the John Muir Trail in under 7 days, so here it is.
Back in September 2010, my two son’s, two of my grandson’s, and I hiked the John Muir Trail (JMT). We hiked 211 miles in 16 days loving every minute on the trail. You can read about it here – JMT 2010.
Well, Paul and Christian decided to do it again in 2013 but this time they planned to do it in less then 7 days. I can tell you that there was a lot of preparation for this trip, especially physical conditioning.
They were up and on the trail every morning by 4:30am (dark) and hiked well into the evening (dark) and averaged just over 32 miles/day. I am not going to give you a lot of dialog about this trip because you can click here JMT 2013 and go through the photo’s and videos of their epic journey. Have fun watching!
Two “Hard Core” men.
Below are just a few of the photo’s from their journey as teasers. You have to go here to see the rest JMT 2013
Hope you enjoy…
