[ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ]
"Walking the West" a documentary about a 1997 Thru Hike on the
Pacific Crest Trail has won the "Best Documentary" Award at the
California Independent Film Festival on November 3rd.
A New Zealander and an Irishman quit their jobs, cash in their savings
and walk 2,626 miles from Mexico to Canada along one of the longest and
most challenging foot trails in the world, the Pacific Crest Trail.
Their route takes them through some of the most spectacular scenery in
North America, including California=92s deserts, the high mountain passes
of the Sierra Nevada, the Cascade Mountains and the lush forests of
Oregon and Washington States.
Walking at a challenging pace of 21 miles a day for 4.5 months, they
must cross the Canadian border before the approaching winter storms.
The ordeal forced one of them to quit just 60 miles before the finish.
An amusingly poignant tale about two novice hikers search for adventure
and enlightenment on the Pacific Crest Trail.
