It’s raining again, so let’s go for a 4-minute hike

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.

Aside from illustrating quite beautifully what 24 frames per second actually looks like, there is an incredible amount of information to be garnered from this video about the nature of filmmaking, the nature of hiking, and, well, the nature of nature. I won’t bore you with an essay on that, though.

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