John Muir Trail Map

After the Hike

Well, I was finally able to transfer all my notes on to my computer. I am back to work and getting ready for football season. My feet are still in pretty bad shape. My 2 middle toes and pad of my feet are still numb, and my feet hurt some mornings when I wake up and walk on them. Once I get going, I don’t notice them. I talked to Lisa, and I think I will try to finish the hike in 2012. I don’t know if it will be solo or if people will join me. Austin doesn’t want to go with me at this time. Connor says he wants to do it. We will see; he will be 12. Rob said he wants to do it. There may be more. But I will go solo if I have to. I need to start exercising again, but it is hard with my feet still not fully recovered. My shin is almost healed up. It is good to be back in civilization, but I want to go back into the wild... I think rather than the hike getting the mountain out of my blood, it got into my blood.

Ben & Austin Hike The John Muir Trail

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.
