That's a whole lot of blisters saved.
You've probably heard of the Pacific Crest Trail, or PCT, the
2,664-mile footpath made famous by Cheryl Strayed's 2012
bestseller, Wild, and the Reese Witherspoon–starring movie of the same
name. You've probably heard that it's gorgeous. And it is. The
trail passes through seven national parks on its way from Mexico to Canada,
across the deserts of Southern California, along the spine of the Sierra
Nevada, and to the glacier-capped peaks of Washington. You've probably
heard that it's hard, and that, too, is true. Parts require technical
ice-climbing skills, and supply stations are scarce. Strayed herself never
finished. Maybe you also heard that it takes at least five months to see
it all—and here's the surprise. A cool new video, from the team
at Halfway Anywhere, lets you experience the best of the PCT in a little
over three minutes. That's armchair-travel time well spent. And a whole
lot of blisters saved. This story originally appeared on Sunset.
