Last Summer, Pete Bell took a group of high school students from Chapel Hill, NC backpacking 220 miles on the John Muir Trail, and had the good sense to bring along an HD video camera to make a mini-documentary.
The 6 minute piece is a nice look into “shock-introducing” kids to hiking, as well as a beautiful showcase of just how amazing the JMT is to hike through. Check out the embedded video below, or if your computer can handle HD video, by all means view it in glorious futurevision.
