I caught this video this morning over at the National Geographic Adventure blog. It features uber-hiker Andrew Skurka and Gerry Mortion, President/CEO of EnergyFirst, hiking the 224-mile (360km) John Muir Trail. The two mean were able to cover the entire distance, from Yosemite Valley to the Mt. Whitney, in just seven days, averaging an impressive 32 miles (51.5km) per day.
The video serves as a great introduction to the trail and some of the amazing scenery found along its length. While not in the same league, in terms of length, with the Pacific Crest or Appalachian Trails, you will get an understanding of why the John Muir is considered to be amongst the best hikes in all of North America.
