In the summer of 2016, I followed in the footsteps of thousands of people before me and hiked the John Muir Trail in California. Along with a motley crew of fierce women, I hiked 220 miles over 22 days, starting in Yosemite and ending at Mt Whitney. It was the most intense, beautiful, challenging, and unpredictable experience of my life. This video is a little window into our time on the trail, focusing on the rewards of a thru-hike and the journey that was just as much mental as it was physical.
