Journeyfilm was there on April 9th when Andrew Skurka began his attempt to become the first person to complete the Great Western Loop, a 6,875-mile footpath that consisting of the Pacific Crest Trail, The Pacific Northwest Trail, The Continental Divide Trail, The Arizona Trail, and a self-made segment through the Sonoran and Mojave Deserts. He began from Grandview Point on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, and so long as things go well he will return there seven months later, in early-November, after having passed through many of the most cherished and pristine wild lands in the Lower 48, including 12 National Parks and over 75 wilderness areas. The Great Western Loop highlights the cumulative magnificence of America's West, its long-distance trail system, and its National Parks, while also highlighting the environmental and ecological threats that they all share.
