This Web presentation tells the story of my solo hike of the John Muir Trail. It also presents my theory that Wilderness is essentially a state of mind. It is presented now without pictures or maps. These will be added later. In fact, I would like your help. Please e-mail me any links that you think are relevant, links about hiking, links about wilderness philosophy, links for maps of the trail, maps of the parks and wilderness areas the trail traverses. Here are a few links to start, along with a set of links for the chapters of the book. Please let me know what you think.
