Ultrarunning, hiking, climbing mountains, essentially "traveling by foot" to the wild pure places still left on the Earth has become a means for many to stay connected to life’s fundamental aspects. John Muir said, “Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”
Here is some video and pictures from the 2013 Bishop Ultramarathon. I completed the 100K in 14 hours 22 minutes.
Amy and I are planning a seven day thru hike in the Sierra Nevada Mountains this summer. This will be Amy's first backpacking overnight adventure into the wilderness so we are both pretty excited. The trip will be a 7 day 62 mile hike from Mammoth lakes to Yosemite Valley with a possible side trip up Half Dome if we can get the permit. Who else is going out for a hike this summer?
Happy trails everyone.
