    Cool Video: There and Back Again: A Hiker's Tale

    I know I took awhile to post this, but life got in the way and I am a 27 year old kid after all.

    I had brought two cameras with me on the trail and I found out when I got home that my Olympus's audio had taken a poo on me. So, I decided to throw in some music and let the visuals speak for them self. In Conclusion, I had an incredible time out there on the Superior Hiking Trail with awesome scenery and I made some new friends too. Thanks for joining me on this adventure and thanks for watching!

    Nice job putting the vid together. Looks like you captured some fun moments with the Grizz family and Mr. Green! Nice song selection: who is that?

    looks like fun man. what a nice fellowship.
    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    what a disappointment it must have been for you to find that audio had crapped out! MrGreen's camera went paws up too, was a hard trip on cameras.

    But this was a nice recovery, it changed the way you thought about composition, the music was really nice. Almost like I was there....

    I bet you'll make sure you've got a working camera for your SHT thru coming up!

    Sometimes commentary gets in the way of the raw beauty and emotion of the moment.
    Music can enhance it, as it did here.
    Nicely done.
