Video: This is Not a Beautiful Hiking Video
Most of the adventurous videos that I share here at The Adventure Blog are all about the amazing journeys that a filmmaker goes on when creating that clip. They seldom show the difficulties that they had to overcome and the hardships they've faced along the way just to get the beautiful shots that make up the film. That is not this video. Here, we join Peter Hochhauser as he sets out on a five month journey to hike the entire length of the Pacific Crest Trail, covering some 2650 miles (4264 km) in the process. This fantastic video essay shows us the ups and downs he faced along the way, and spoiler alert, it turns out it was a fairly beautiful trip nonetheless. Enjoy.
