It Calls My Name and Taunts Me

Every year about this time my heart starts yearning for the great outdoors, for a wild and adventurous trip to the mountains, streams, wildflowers, animals, campfires, fishing, backpacking…. Twice the John Muir Trail has sucked me in, and every time I go back and look at my pictures, I’m drawn toward it again. Twice I’ve hiked it, twice I’ve sworn I’d never do it again…

  • "Twice I’ve hiked it, twice I’ve sworn I’d never do it again…" = love it! sounds like childbirth! hahahah

  • This year there's still a ton of snow in the eastern sierras. Maybe hike it late July or August sometime.
