Walk the Sky is the most comprehensive published photographic essay of  the John Muir Trail since Ansel Adams’ treatment of the subject in 1938.  Over the course of three decades photographer John Dittli has captured the many moods along the “summit” of the Pacific Crest.  Through the large format color plates with essays by Mark Schlenz, the reader wanders from north to south along 200 miles of the Sierra Nevada.  Three hundred of these fine art books, in a signed, slip cased, limited, numbered  collectors edition, are now available for pre-publication sales only through the photographer.  To order your copy please click here.

“I just received my autographed book today (I was told I got the first shipped signed edition), it is unbelievably most beautiful and most fantastic. An absolute valued and most treasured book. For all who have hiked the JMT, I highly, most highly recommend this book.”

-Roleigh Martin, John Muir Trail@yahoogroups

“Awesome … no other publication I have read does a finer job of getting at the physical and emotional transcendence that occurs from spending large uninterrupted periods of time in Wilderness.”

–Eric Gabriel, Valley District Ranger, Yosemite National Park

“The  essays do a lovely job of conveying things that feel so familiar to the life and work that we experience working in the high sierra (the physical attunement of one’s body after weeks and months on the trail).  I found myself wanting to see many more of John’s gorgeous images … he has captured beautiful images with the eye of someone who is intimate with the land he is photographing.”

Erika Jostad, Backcountry Ranger, Sequoia National Park
