“I still wasn’t ready to climb into a tree in a windstorm—I may never be—but I now understood the impulse to feel the vibration of a storm, to hear the heartbeat of the worlds. John Muir got it right when he said the beauty fo this place can only be felt, not explained.”
When Suzanne Roberts sets out with her college friends on a 28 day trip of the John Muir Trail I do not think she knew what to expect. To anyone who has done any type of hiking day trips or long distances, it is not easy, there are struggles and challenges, physically and emotionally, but in the end you can find yourself within the beauty of the great outdoors along with learning what is important in life.
