Muir walked from SF to Yosemite in 1868. True. Walked. This walk was duplicated by Peter and Donna Thomas of Santa Cruz in 2006. I’ve mentioned them before but now you have a chance to hear how they did it.
The Thomas’ wrote a book (I have assigned copy) “Muir Ramble Route: Walking from San Francisco to Yosemite in the footsteps of John Muir.” It’s full of detailed info. They did a ton of research to get it right. Muir wrote some about the trip but they had to dig deep. Some neat maps included. Yes, YOU can do this walk if so inclined. Learn how.
They will be at select REI stores in the greater Bay Area soon. Talks are free and at begin at 7pm. Call to register to make sure you get a seat. I’ll be at the Saratoga one…tomorrow.
