hiking is not just for summer! I actually like it more from early fall to late spring.. Of course I do live in the South east

This video is way cool!

This is a really great video Seth. Thanks for sharing. Granted the quality, etc may not be as great but this makes me want to get a GoPro even more. I want to explore doing video trip reports.

Pretty sweet.  

Too bad this weekend is all booked up.  Weather is great here in Asheville for backpacking...

I was anticipating a breakthru Broadway hit.  I misread the thread headings, and thought it said John Muir Trail the Musical...

I'm glad you liked it.  For me, the most significant thing about this video is that it makes hiking look exciting.  Out of all outdoor activities, I think hiking has the greatest difference between how dynamic it is versus how dynamic it looks on film.  Kayaking, Mountain biking, bouldering, etc...all look at least somewhat as kinetic and exciting as they actually are.
