Do the JMT in October on 10/03/2011 15:28:37 MDT Print View

Hey All,

The John Muir Trail is amazing in early October, see video: John Muir Trail Video

Permits for Mt. Whitney and the JMT are easy to get now. Let me know if you have any questions.

This is a summary of an October thru-hike on the John Muir Trail. I traveled seven days on foot from Whitney Portal to Yosemite and stuffed my camera with as much beauty as I could. Evening temperatures were below freezing each night and signs of winter were ever-present. I hope you enjoy the pictures and the story.THE START

The photo looks like Mount Muir, just south of Mount Whitney.

Ryan, your video was completely enthralling - very well put together, and I am in awe of how much beauty you were able to get on film while hiking at that pace, not to mention the way the video managed to capture the emotional aspect of your trip. Thank you for posting this.

P.S. I'm glad you were able to get nearly to the end before the worst of the storm hit!
