Hiking the John Muir Trail has been a dream of mine for almost 5 years. During that time, I have been stuck, unmotivated and uninspired. Life has presented me with far more ‘lows’ than ‘highs’ and many circumstances have prevented me from getting on the JMT. Until now.
2020 is shaping up to be the year that my dream becomes a reality. During my research and planning the past few years, I discovered the HIKE for Mental Health organization and instantly knew I wanted to help contribute and give back to the hiking community that has become such a big part of my life. As a result, I have designated my John Muir Trail hike as a ‘Create Your Own’ hike for Mental Health.

Happy Hiking and Namaste!
