Pacific Crest Trail: A Journey in Photographs

At 2,660 miles long and with over 400,000 total feet of elevation change, the Pacific Crest Trail, which stretches from Mexico to Canada, is not for the weak-legged. Chris Alexander's Pacific Crest Trail: A Journey in Photographs allows less hard-core hikers to traverse the famous path – vicariously, at least. Alexander, who hiked and photographed the entire trail over five months in 2012, not only captures iconic vistas in places like Oregon's Three Sisters Wilderness, he lingers over the small stuff: ice crystals in California's Kings Canyon National Park, green shoots of mullein sprouting among volcanic rocks. Through Alexander's lens, the trail itself is at once a remarkable feat of engineering and a landscape feature as natural and spectacular as Crater Lake. This is a book that will quicken the pulse of veteran hikers – and inspire even the most couch-bound potato to grab a backpack.
