Mile, Mile & A Half
Hike. Laugh. Inspire. Sometimes it is about the journey.
Just 915 miles from Seattle and fewer than 200 from San Francisco, the John Muir Trail (JMT) stretches 211 miles through some of the most beautiful and pristine wilderness in the world. In July of 2011, five friends and artisans set out on an epic 25-day journey on the JMT from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney to document the sights and sounds of the Sierra Nevada high country.
What began as an adventure to see if they could complete the trail, became the need to capture the experience in order to share the trail with others. For this is not the story of die-hard rugged athletes defying all odds to endure a harsh environment. It is the tale of five friends with passions in the arts and the outdoors that join with like-minded people and share an escapade like no other. In the midst of the grandeur and daily grind, they discover what matters most is the opportunity to seek adventure wherever and whenever you can.
Mile... Mile & A Half is the feature-length documentary of that journey...
