Chalk this up as the coolest thing I’ve seen all day. Kevin Gallagher had the brilliant idea to take 24 pictures on 24 successive steps each day of his 6 months hiking the Appalachian Trail. The result is a hypnotic look at what it’s like to traverse from Georgia to Maine.

Grab a copy of Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods and come along for the hike:
