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!

Yosemite + Muir + Happy Links

Well, hello there! Things have been a bit quiet around here this week thanks to a whole host of offline business, but I wanted to be sure to introduce a new and improved version of the "A Snap + A Quote" series.I'm always stumbling across people, places and things that make me smile, so I'm adding them to the mix! Ready? Here it goes:


"The mountains are calling and I must go." - John Muir

Happy Links:

  • This great post from the No More Dirty Looks gals soliciting a clean cosmetics resource list from everyone on the internet.
  • C'est Christine's lovely postcard post from the Brooklyn Bridge, which is satisfying my inner bridge nerd.
  • A wonderful collection of bear photos over on My Modern Met (and pretty much every collection of photos on My Modern Met).
  • Bloglovin' as my new blog reader. So much better than what I was using before.
  • This incredible cabin renovation over on Smitten Studio, which is really making me want a fixer cabin. Stat!


Happy Friday, all. I hope you have a lovely weekend!
