We always encourage people to stay active while on vacation. Diane definitely did that on her most recent trip to California. She set out to conquer the John Muir Trail, a long distance trail in the Sierra Nevada mountain range that passes through Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.
Diane was planning to hike for 21 days, but the parks were closed as a result of fires. However, before their trip was cut short, she managed to:
HIKE 130 MILES IN 13 DAYS
GAIN 18,000 FEET OF ELEVATION
CARRY A 35-POUND BACKPACK THE ENTIRE TIME
In case you were wondering, she said there's a "100% chance" that she'll return to complete the entire hike! We've no doubt!
Diane, you've taken "active vacation" to a new level. We're so impressed with your work capacity and your willingness to challenge yourself! Way to go!*
