Walking a Stateline part 01

Walking a State Line  part 01

after finishing parts 2 and 3, I finally finished the first part!   there will probably be 6 or 7 parts total when I am done.

this was one of the hardest videos I've done.  it has been in the hopper for a long time, but finally came together with a contribution of pictures from Jerry.  

this was my first hike on the Stateline Trail, with Jerry Finnegan.  he did 70 miles total, I did 40 miles total.   I met him after he had already gone 30 miles.

Illinois Peak ICT

section hike from my seven year project to hike the Idaho Centennial Trail

this section goes from Cascade Pass to Hoodoo Pass, both on the Idaho-Montana stateline.  

I wanted to make this all one video, but due to file size restrictions for my movie making software, had to break it up into 3 parts.

Part A
part B
part C

Dotting the "I" videos

I finally got all 3 segments completed for the Priest Lake to Canada section of my Idaho Centennial Trail hike.

Dotting the I part 02

new video:

another section of my seven year hike across Idaho on the Idaho Centennial Trail.  from July of 2011. 
this is part 02, part 01 is still a work-in-progress. part 03 is already on my YouTube channel. this was my next-to-last segment to finish the trail. up north of Priest Lake, only 1/4 mile from the U.S. Canadian border, Upper Priest Falls (or some call it American Falls) is the northern terminus of the ICT. the trail ends at the falls. it would take a very determined soul to scale the rocks to get all the way to the Canadian border. here a team of 3 makes an almost 11 mile hike. Basically we have to park a car at either end, hike up to the falls, then hike back down and continue on south to the trailhead out. John Kennedy, my friend from TEXAS, joins with Tyler Parrish and myself for this hike.

the pictures are a combination from my camera and John's (and his 2 videos of the falls).
