capture and share real journeys THRU long trails,
to inspire humans and protect nature.
The first chapter
With cameras in hand, packs on our backs, and open-minds we set forth on the 1,200-mile Pacific Northwest Trail. In this space we explored the physical and mental unknown, experienced an adventure, and connected with the spirit of one of the world’s wildest wilderness corridors.
In 2019, a feature-length film chronicling our journey THRU | The Pacific Northwest will be released.
This is a devotion.
A hard-won quest with many layers
Averaging over 20 miles per day, with 3,000 feet of elevation gain, this is a real journey, captured solely by the people walking it. It’s not just a beautiful walk, it’s story grounded in grit.
Every week our rations ran out and we were forced to resupply. With just our thumbs, we hitch-hiked to out-of-the-way towns and found ourselves interacting with the core of Pacific Northwest culture.
Moving across America’s last intact eco-system outside Alaska, we hiked with Leave No Trace principles thru a plethora of geologies, biologies, habitats and climates. Expert voices provide rich context to the wilderness we walk THRU.
Having sourced hundreds of vintage photographs, and dozens of oral histories from the first European settlers to populate the Pacific Northwest, this story will be filled with the ever-present ghosts of giants long-gone.
Nature is a nomad, and she needs to move.
