Mt. Whitney to Yosemite, A Lifetime Walking the John Muir Trail & Pacific Coast Trail

In 1977, high school graduates, Cheryl Emrich (Pytlarz) 17 years old and Frances French (Reneau) 18 years old, set out alone to hike over 350 miles in over 6 weeks along the High Sierra in California. Their trek included all of the John Muir Trail, additional mileage on the PCT, and a dozen day hikes on layover days. They did not finish as planned. Life intervened and 41 years later in 2018 they reunited to complete the last week of their youthful ambition.
