Few things match the thrill of completing a childhood dream. And for Emma (trail name Pepper), that's exactly what thru-hiking the John Muir Trail was! A childhood dream come true.
We recently supplied Pepper with our Unstuffed Pepper and Hearty Harvest Bowl for her journey. She's chronicled her 19 day trip on her blog, and between her tongue-in-cheek wit, her beaming selfie smile, and the gorgeous scenery, you'll feel transported!
Her honest telling of her tale and the fears and challenges she faced as a solo female hiker will have you in equal parts cheering and commiserating - simultaneously when it comes to her recounting the endless switchbacks!
