When you commit to hiking the John Muir Trail, you can train but you can’t ever totally prepare. I know, I know, Cheryl Strayed in Wild makes a hero’s journey and comes out the otherside of her life while on the trail that didn’t happen for me, but I did learn about the importance of moving- moving forward and through and over and down and up and then doing it all over again.
Aman in Sanskrit stands for peace and Giri for mountain. The hotel certainly lives up to it’s name. The Amangiri is a gorgeous tribute to innovative concrete building. A reminder that while the US military fashioned all sorts of ugly concrete bunkers with creativity and money a concrete bunker can be transformed into a work of art.
