Movie Night: Mile... Mile & a Half

Looking for a great hiking movie for a night in? Mile... Mile & a Half (2013, 1h 27m) is a documentary about a group of friends who leave their daily lives to hike California's historic John Muir Trail (a 211-mile stretch from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney). Successfully funded through Kickstarter, this movie was wonderfully shot (how can you go wrong with the JMT?) while being lighthearted and quite enjoyable. As an added bonus, download the .MP3 file that you can play alongside the movie for behind-the-scenes audio commentary.

"In an epic snow year, five friends leave their daily lives behind to hike California’s historic John Muir Trail, a 211-mile stretch from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney (the highest peak in the contiguous U.S.).  Their goal — complete the journey in 25 days while capturing the amazing sights & sounds they encounter along the way.  Inspired by their bond, humor, artistry & dedication, the group continues to grow: to include other artists, musicians & adventure seekers.  Before they all reach the summit, hikers and viewers alike affirm the old adage — it’s about the journey, not the destination. Mile… Mile & A Half is the feature-length documentary of that journey… - See more at The Muir Project."
