The Muir Project: An Interview for Submerge Magazine

So you've all heard of The Muir Project, right? No? Well, let me introduce you!

Basically, a group of five friends (who just happen to be incredibly talented artists) decided to tackle the John Muir Trail (JMT) in the summer of 2011. They researched and prepared with the goals of 1.) completing the hike and 2.) capturing as much of their beautiful surroundings as possible so they could share it with others.

This is the result of that epic journey: 

The team members behind Mile, Mile & A Half are now touring the country and will be making a stop in Sacramento on June 15. I recently had the chance to interview a few of them for Submerge Magazine.


If you're in Sacramento, you should be able to find a print copy at just about any news stand in downtown or midtown. If you'd like to scope out the interview digitally, you can do so here.

Ticket sales for the first few premiers and screenings have gone very well and the team is anticipating a pretty great turnout for the Sacramento event. In other words: if you haven't snagged your tickets, get on it


Anyone out there hiked the JMT? I've never taken a true backpacking trip before (day hiker, here), but this film has me juuuust about ready to give it a shot. If you have any stories, feel free to share them in the comment section below! 

Hope to see a few of your smiling faces at the screening this weekend!

Northern California + Calderón + Happy Links


 "Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises."  // Pedro Calderón de la Barca

Happy Links:

  • Adina at The Gluten Free Travelette shared a recent hike in Washington that had me craving somequality mountain time. I immediately added the hike to my "I Want To Go To There" Pinterest board.
  • My favorite resource for clean cosmetics, No More Dirty Looks, is hiring an assistant! If you're interested and have the time, you should definitely think about reaching out.
  • These prosthetic limbs are incredible. Who knew artificial limbs could be so artfully done?! I'm not sure if you all know this (I suppose I don't write about it much), but I was born with just half of my right arm and I wear a prosthesis everyday. These beauties have me wishing for an upgrade!

Wrap it Up:

  • On Monday, I professed my love for Skillshare. I'm taking the "How to Write a Killer Magazine Article Pitch" class... which reminds me: I need to start my project!
  • I welcomed a new series to the blog this week that focuses on the careers of creative entrepreneurs. Be sure to stop in and check it out!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. I'll be spending it at a garage sale I'm co-hosting with my mom in an effort to get rid of excess. If you're in the Sacramento area and want the details, let me know!
