In Memoriam: Erik Koelzer "Beautiful, but brutal" is how Erik summed up the JMT after completing his first segment in 2014. A testament to Erik’s persistence and determination, he hiked over 240 miles to finish the 211-mile JMT in three segments spanning three years. His first hike was from Agnew Meadows to Whitney, where he recorded daily video to share his journey with family and friends. His next segment was from Agnew Meadows to Tuolumne, and the third was from Tuolumne to the Valley in his first solo hike. On top of Whitney, he described the physical and mental trials necessary to complete the JMT, but he proclaimed that it was all worth it. He felt this experience was one of his greatest accomplishments.

Heading north from Independence over Keasarge Pass that morning, we had just hiked up Glen Pass in 90F heat and asked someone to snap a photo when Alex surprised Wayne with a lift on his shoulders. I thought they might tumble off the summit! The blinding fatigue of the day was completely swept away in the thrill of the moment. What a JMT memory to capture on film!
