It has nearly been two years (yes, two years…I know, I know) since I finished the JMT and I just now got around to making a video with all of my footage from the trail. I started an iteration of the video after I finished the hike, but the file became corrupt and I didn’t have the patience to go back in and re-do the entire thing at the time. And I’m glad I didn’t, because I’m way happier with this second version!
Creating this video transported me back to the trail, and again made me so grateful for the experience. For those that may not have read my excessively long story, I started the trail solo, but I met so many great people out there. On the 4th day I met my dear friend Frizzle, and we ended up sticking together for 12 days and finishing together!
It was tough to cram 16 days and 227 miles of backpacking into 10 minutes of video, but somehow I did it.
If you have any questions about hiking John Muir Trail, or questions about any of the spots you see in the video, leave me a comment or drop me a note!
