I plopped together some footage/photos I took while hiking the CDT this year. Figured some prospective hikers might be interested in looking at it.

Photos here.
Video here.

It was my first trail of the big three and I liked it a lot.

Very nice! It looks like you experienced a little bit of everything along the way; just perfect for a thru-hike. Congrats!

Great movie - thanks for sharing...

May I ask why you decided to do the CDT as the first of the big three?

The CDT seemed more exciting than the other two. It also traversed more areas that I was interested in/haven't been to.

Nice video! on 11/15/2013 21:12:06 MST Print View

The only problem with it is that it needs to be longer so we can enjoy more pretty countryside!

There are a lot of places I would like to revisit..... Glacier, the Bob, the Anaconda-Pintlers, the Beaverheads, the Winds, the San Juans during a less hazardous weather window, the Gila, etc, etc.

The trail goes through a lot of good places, enough to make me forget about some.

Definitely good stuff. As for spending more time in each, been thinking it might be worth getting a vehicle, parking it at the TH at each, … the Gila, San Juan's, etc.. and spending several days looping each wilderness, then repeating as the snow retreats further north from mid-spring to summer (south or north) .. or vice versa.

I use a little kodak playsport for video while hiking/traveling. I like that it waterproof/fairly indestructible.

Updated my original post to include some photos posted here.
