4,000 Photos, 5 Journals, and a Ukulele: Three Iconic Trails Captured

Adventure seriesIn a world of souvenirs and digital cameras, it's easy for travelers to commemorate a trip with T-shirts, postcards, refrigerator magnets, and quickly snapped photos to say, "I've been here."

But do these things really acknowledge the adventure had? Probably not.

In a three-part series, we'll introduce you to filmmaker Kevin Gallagher, writer Kolby Kirk, and the multimedia artists of The Muir Project. These creative geniuses traveled for months and miles along three iconic long-distance hiking trails in North America, documenting their experiences through unique and extraordinary means. What they came home with are mementos that keep their journeys alive and make you feel as though you have just walked hundreds of miles as well.
