Man hikes 2600 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail, takes a selfie every mile

Friday, March 27, 2015

Back in 2013, Austin-based filmmaker Andy Davidhazy followed the footsteps of Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon in Wild), by hiking the 2660-mile-long Pacific Crest Trail, documenting his journey by stopping for a selfie every mile, and then he stitched them all together into a time-lapse video.
It took about 5 months to complete and I lost 50 pounds in process.

The process of stopping to take a picture every mile had a big impact on the actual experience of doing the hike. I had to be well-aware of where I was at all times, which was quite distracting in that it took me out of the moment and made it difficult to maintain good momentum. Though I suppose it was nice to have something to occupy my thoughts with as well. In retrospect, I am happy to have done it. It provided a good conversation starter with so many hikers that I would meet along the way. And I now love seeing so many wonderful faces popping up in pictures in unexpected places.
