Why does a group of creative artists take their gear on a 230 mile, 25 day backpacking trip? The Muir Project is why. This team not only creates masterful images in remote places, but they're able to endure rough terrain and heavy packs. Hiking for 25 days with a 75lb pack is crazy, but the images are certainly worth it. This is the video for the behind the scenes featurette for the Muir Project documentary, "Mile...Mile & A Half".
Here is the teaser piece that they released a few months ago. I can't wait for this to come out!
