Walking The Pacific Crest Trail All The Way From California To BC

(via) Despite its comparative accessibility, to hike the Pacific Crest Trail has long been one of those dreams up there in the hierarchy of likelihoods as setting foot on the moon. The 4,279 km route starts in southern California and ends up in BC having snaked its way up the length of the Sierra Nevada and Cascade mountain ranges. I mean, it’s a hard thing to imagine. Vimeo user Halfway Anywhere makes it easier with this video, which depicts the four month journey in three-second clips.

“On May 17, 2013 I was dropped off in Campo, California at the US/Mexico Border. Four and a half months later I was in Manning Park, British Columbia having walked the 2,600 mile Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) across California, Oregon, and Washington to do get there.”

Respect.
