Photos of JMT Hike - Day by Day

Some people have tracked my progress during my hike online. I used the resulting online track to geotag my photos. This way you can see for each photo, where it was taken. For each day you will find the same hiking description (including photos) as in my hike report. In addition you will see the map with the SPOT track and photos in the locations they were taken. The statistics you see on the SPOT page are misleading. The length is calculated based on the waypoints transmitted by the SPOT messenger. The straight lines between these waypoints result in a way shorter hike length. I add the correct data below. Click on any given hiking day in the column "description"  to see my report and the photos. I uploaded a total 572 photos and hope they can give you an impression of our experience on the trail

By making the hike report available day by day, users of Firefox are now also able to read my hike report beyond day 17 :)
