Selfie Every Mile – level 3

19-04-2022 15:00

A man set out for the Pacific Crest Trail, which stretches from the borders of Mexico to Canada. He decided to take a selfie every single mile along the 4,184-kilometre trek.

Andy created a time-lapse video from his five-month hike and he is almost unrecognisable towards the end of the video – he had lost 23 kilograms.

Sadly, he never finished the trek, as a snow storm stranded him about 418 kilometres from the end.

Difficult words: crest (the top of a mountain or a hill), stretch (extend over an area), trek (a journey), stranded (be stuck, unable to continue).

You can watch the video news lower on this page.

What do you think about this man’s pictures and his trip?
