Backpacking To Havasupai Falls Video: A Desert Paradise

I just returned from a backpacking trip to Havasupai Falls. For Trail to Peak’s newest team member, my 5 month old son, this backpacking trip was a first. I did a lot of research before heading out on this trip, and was blown away by the photos and video of hyper blue waterfalls and streams. Seeing all of the falls in person is something I’ll never forget. The views are impossible to completely capture with a camera, but I hope this short video can give you at least a small taste of what it’s like to enjoy this paradise.

John Muir Trail Thousand Island Lake to Deer Creek

Watch My Backpacking The John Muir Trail Documentary!

Last year, I walked 210 miles with 80,000ft of elevation change from Yosemite Valley to the 14,505ft summit of Mt. Whitney.  It was an incredible journey through the Sierra Nevada mountains, and an adventure I’ll never forget. I’ve created day by day accounts of this adventure on this blog, and am now ready to share the documentary video I put together as a compliment to those posts. I hope you enjoy watching this, and if you do, make sure to hit ‘thumbs up’ and leave me a comment here or on YouTube. Happy trails everyone!
