Just like the East Coast has the Appalachian Trail, us West Coast folks have the Pacific Crest Trail. Running 2,663 miles from Mexico to Canada, it treks through 25 national forests and 7 national parks while traversing California, Oregon, and Washington.

A few years back, a guy named Mac, hiked the entire thing and filmed one second each day of this incredible 5 month adventure. He turned it into this awe-inspiring 3 minute video. Mac then posted it on his blog Halfway Anywhere.

Now lazy people like you and me can see what it was like  hiking it, and not have to spend five months doing so!
