The Trip 8 team traveled to their meeting point in California today. Trip leader Derek says:
“With excitement, the team will begin the journey by getting JMT tattoos (‘John Muir Trail’ was too long to tattoo and would take a lot of time to ink eight hikers, time we don’t have). Then we’ll spend the night at the trailhead, Silver Lake in the June Lake Loop just north of Mammoth Lakes.”
If you know Derek, you know he likes to have fun with his trip updates. Tattoos? For now, only the Trip 8 team knows for sure.
Based on the photo below, I think we can say this is an enthusiastic group. Rest well, Trip 8 team!
