Photographer Andy Davidhazy hiked over 2,600 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), taking a selfie at every mile along the way.
His inspiring journey took over five months to complete, required five pairs of shoes, and 4.5 million steps — including five black bears, one wolverine, and dozens of rattlesnakes.
The transformation his body goes through is incredible to witness — two full beards and losing nearly 50 pounds! The journey is the inspiration for an upcoming short film entitled “Lost or Found” starring Davidhazy.
Here’s a brief synopsis of the film and its theme:
“After hiking 2600 miles from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail, a man discovers that life after a life-changing experience isn’t the change he planned for.”
Davidhazy’s journey leaves us with one key takeaway: Whether you’re looking to escape the city noise or find something deep within yourself, immersing yourself in the wild is a powerful way to recharge and grow as a person.
Share his incredible transformation with your friends.
