Hiking the John Muir Trail – Glenn Pass and Forester Pass

It was round about this time that the finality of the trip started to set in. There were less than 50 miles left to go, and although are bodies were ready for them, I don’t think our minds were.



We crossed Glenn Pass and then stormed up the ascent to Forester Pass. Forester pass is just amazing. It’s carved out of the hillside and tops out at 13200 feet. I couldn’t help but scream something triumphant (see video below) when I reached the top.


From there we travelled down another amazing set of switch backs on our way towards Guitar Lakes.


Check out the video below (it’s only 5 and a half minutes) to see the second last leg of the trip.
