The Ultra Experience

Here's to the adventures of my life which are usually ultra marathon trail running or fly fishing but may include other trips, experiences, thoughts, opinions, or pretty much whatever I want. As co-founder of Altra Footwear my life and adventures seemingly revolve more around developing and promoting the best footwear in the world...and I love it!

John Muir Trail Completed!

It was conquered! The entire length of the John Muir Trail is behind me...and it was amazing! Golden Harper and I completed the official length, Yosemite Happy Isles to the top of Mt Whitney, in 8 days 5 hrs. More details to come.

I think I will give a day by day account in a two part series over the next few days. There will be pleny of pictures and even audio clips. Needless to say, we had a great time. The JMT did not disappoint with it's broad valleys, clear lakes and streams, glacial mountains, and jagged peaks. Constant inspiration and beauty, it provided amazing vistas, tough climbs, and plenty of memories. It was the trip of a lifetime!
