Daniel Rodriguez-Granrose did a lot of walking for a good cause. Emily Burns and Henry Friedrich joined their friend for a 2,650 miles hike that took them from Mexico to Canada, through the Pacific Crest Trail.
PCT begins on the Mexico-U.S. border in Campo, California and ends on the U.S.-Canada border in Manning Park, British Columbia. The trail is no easy feat with high mountain ranges and low point passages. Hikers encounter every type of weather from cold winds, snow, to dry, dessert heat. It is very common for people to quit from exhaustion, dehydration, and isolation.
Rodriguez-Granrose resigned from his job to complete his five-and-half month journey. The three friends’ goal was to raise money for the Hike for Mental Health organization. Their target was to raise $1 per mile walked. This video chronicles their route passing through 25 forests and seven national parks.
