Green Tunnel

Hiking the Appalachian Trail in 5 Minutes

A stop-motion video over 2,200 miles of trail from Georgia to Maine. Sublime and gorgeous, especially on a day of rain:

Why hike the long trail? In part:
because hiking defines freedom, adventure, peace and beauty;
because no two days are ever alike.
because the toughest executive decision out here is how much water to carry, how many miles to hike, and where to camp -
best of all, none need board approval to be put into action.
because, mercifully, there are no phones or pagers on the trail;
because some of the most awesome people I know walk trails.
