Get inspired to take a hike. Or grow a big beard.

Kk4Looking for inspiration as you plan hiking adventures for the coming year? Avid hiker Kolby Kirk recently posted this video documenting his increasingly hirsute five-month hike along the Pacific Crest Trail in 2011. “Condor” (as he calls himself on the trail) “hiked 1700 miles, lost 90 pounds, and gained an epic beard.” (If facial hair brings out the inner Delilah in you, you may prefer the video that inspired Kolby.)

The modern Muir promotes hiking on his Web site, thehikeguy.com. Don’t miss the snippets from his elaborate trail journals here.
