Selfie every mile - level 2
The Pacific Crest Trail runs across the United States. It starts on the border with Mexico and ends on the border with Canada. It is 2,600 miles long (4,184 kilometres) and runs through the mountains of California, Oregon and Washington.
A man went on a hike on the trail and took a selfie at every mile (1.6 kilometres). The man from Texas created a video from the pictures that he took. He looks very different at the beginning and at the end of the video – he lost 50 pounds (23 kilograms) in weight.
After five months on the trail, 418 kilometres from the end, he had to stop because a snow storm stranded him.
Difficult words: crest (the top of a mountain or a hill), trail (a way you walk on in the countryside), stranded (to be stuck, unable to continue).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
