Mile 903 Spent the last couple weeks making my way through the high sierras. My days have been filled with snowy mountain passes, ice cold river crossings and the most stunning scenery I’ve ever seen. But the most notable part of this section for me has been the people. After an ankle injury forced me to take a couple of weeks off, I’ve spent the last 700 miles trying to catch up to my original group.

The unforgettable emotional journey is harder than the physical one. I’m continuing to be fascinated every day with your progress and yes you have to make a book or something about this after you get home with all the amazing photos you’ve taken. I want the first print 😜
