Hiker Takes 2,600 Selfies Along the Pacific Crest Trail

Support Provided By

The Pacific Crest Trail, from the southern point on the Mexico border, to the northern-most point on the Canadian border, runs approximately 2,660 miles. The range in elevation on the hike goes from sea level to a peak of 13,153 feet at Forester Pass in the Sierra Nevada. Walking the entire whole journey takes hikers through 25 national forests and seven National Parks. The whole thing takes roughly six to eight months to complete. If one is doing the hike solo, it's a whole lot of time to spend with oneself.

Hiking enthusiast Andy Davidhazy decided to break up the time a bit by pausing, posing, and taking a photo of himself at every mile. And as he wrote on his blog, this habit had a profound effect on his journey:

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.

After finishing the trail, Davidhazy sat himself down at his editing bay for about 200 hours, and turned the 2,660 photos into a time-lapse video. Here it is:
