A couple summers ago, I went on one of the greatest adventures of my life with my best friend. We backpacked from Yosemite Valley to Mammoth over 6 days. This part of the trail overlaps the Pacific Crest Trail and was my second time on the John Muir Trail, but my first with this sexy beast.
I desperately needed it at that time in my life, and I was depressed when it came time to return to society. Living out of a backpack engulfed in the beauty of nature has a way of putting life back into perspective.
I look forward to many more adventures with this guy.
