This is just a photo collage video I made after my AT thru hike. Three years later watching it again I would definitely say it’s not very good/entertaining. But it does give a good sense of what a thru hike feels like I think. So I’ll share it just for that reason.

Song choices: You may recognize the first one from the Kill Bill Vol 1 soundtrack, it’s titled The Lonely Shepard. I love that movie/soundtrack, and found myself humming this song in particular quite often on this hike. The second one is clearly a very cheesy/cliche choice for a video associated with a thru hike. But I love Passion Pit and that song so whatever.
