Day 27

We got up at 6:30 had breakfast and was on the trail by 7:45. We stated our climb to trail crest and from there to the top of Mt Whitney. We finally reach trail crest around 11:45 we drop off our tent and with our pack on we headed up to the summit. OMG that was such a hard and ugly climb that 1.9 miles took forever. Around 1:45 we reach the top of Whitney took so photos. Around 2:15 the wind pick up and it was starting to get cool. We had lunch with John and Casey then we headed our way down to trail camp. The climb down took its told on my knee and Alex feet. As we reach the 99 switchbacks I told alex to head on out ahead of me to set up camp. I finally reach our campsite around 6. It was a strange feeling knowing that we just completed the whole JMT. We just had 6 miles and we be out of thee back country and into the real world

John Muir Trail - 2010

The John Muir Trail passes through a land of 13,000 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. The John Muir Trail is 211 miles long and runs (mostly in conjunction with the PCT) from Yosemite Valley to Mt Whitney, in California.
