This past summer I hiked the John Muir Trail with my brother. Without the information I learned on this site, I would have never been able to complete it.
The gear I used was more or less Ryan's 5 pounds sleep/shelter/clothing system + a 3 pounds MS Phantom, a 2 pound Bearikade, a 3/4 Nightlight, and more "easentials" than were originally on his list. A typical day was 16 miles/3,500 feet up and down, but we did have two 20 mile/5,000 feet elevation gain days. One covering Glen and Forester passes in the same day.
Below are some of my favorite pictures. They were all taken with a Ricoh GR1v using Fuji Velva 100. They were scanned with a Cannon Photosmart S20 using Vuescan and then processed in Photoshop. Click on any of the pictures below to see a larger image.
Hope you like them.
