If you're a recreational hiker, a thru-hiker, or someone just mildly interested in hiking, you should check out this film "As it Happens: Pacific Crest Trail!"
Two friends who met while hiking the AT on the east coast go on to hike the Pacific Crest Trail. They left the Mexican Border on May 5th and very slowly made it up the trail. They finally ended in Canada, in a lot of snow, on October 26th. And their journey is nearly unbelievable. Still, there are hundreds who have done this!
This film is one of the best hiking documentaries I've watched. The combo of photography, film, music and comments given through are great, and one of the guys (Andy) composed all the music in the film. This film captures both the highs and lows of life on the trail, giving a beautiful taste of nature.
Only wilderness can share such true beauty, holding the power to leave us in silent awe. Having never hiked so much in the west, these sights are awesome! Everyone who has made this journey deserves a round of applause!
