The following chart shows my acculated miles from my many Big Trips, and the elevation along those trips. The chart excludes Cascade trips, the '93 Sierra non-trip (ten miles RT, Aug 2-3) and day-hikes (about 20 miles).


The next chart shows each trip separately, with mileage and elevation relative to each trailhead.


Here is my progress along the John Muir Trail. It's not of great importance that I complete the JMT, since the area around the Devils Postpile is deep in the woods. If that were my passion I'd be doing it MUCH closer to home!
