Hiking in the San Gabriel Mountains

Posted By on February 26, 2014

Three guys from Minnesota went backpacking in February, and you won’t believe what happens next…

I hate that stupid teaser.  You see it on every Facebook/ Buzz Feed post and every unimportant story on the web.  But I’m going to steal it at the same time I mock it.

We just got back from the first adventure of 2014, a 3 day excursion in Angeles National Forest just east of Los Angeles, California.  Awesome timing to get away and an incredible trip with the Puchtel brothers.  Check out the video above documenting our crazy time.  I love how easy it is to bring an iPhone to take pictures/movies, then use the iMovie app to quickly create and upload the video.  #technologywin, #canthepalmpredothatyet?

    This looks like an awesome experience – three good friends, three great days,
    and no worries about “reservations”. I’m going to take my backpack to bed with me tonight :). I’m ready to hit the trail.

    I can’t believe I am only now getting to this video; what an awesome mini-documentary of your trip. I love the opening song, and smiled broadly at minutes 0:37, 3:29, and 7:15. This is such a powerful medium for sharing your experience with us; thank you for taking the time and making the effort to create it!
