13. Hikers of the John Muir Trail: Documenting the Inspiring Faces on America’s most famous trail
Tim is former military. Special forces, I believe. He looks like a real hard-ass when you first meet him, and is built like a truck, but I got him to crack a smile for this shot.
Topi is from Kenya, and was hiking the John Muir Trail southbound when I came across her during a resupply at Reds Meadow. She currently lives in Cambridge, MA and was using her JMT hike to figure out whether or not she wants to go to medical school.
Jake is from San Diego, and loves the outdoors. He is hoping to get his dad and brothers into hiking with him in the future, but apparently they aren’t as adventurous as he is.
I bumped into Lillian from NYC on her JMT hike in the Ansel Adams Wilderness. She likes hiking solo, and hopes to soon be going to Europe to hike the Tour de Mont Blanc. Lillian wants you to know that she’s an avid Kansas City Chiefs fan.
Meet more of the hikers and follow Jon Grall’s portrait photography project on Instagram. PS. He’s my brother by the way!
