These episodes were originally authored on a dual sided DVD entitled Mt. Rainier: Hiking the Wonderland Trail and contained over 3 hours of content. The DVD was published just months before the devastating floods in the fall of 2006. Although much of the park was affected by the floods, in large part hiking the Wonderland Trail remains the same as it was when I did my first trip in 1986. With over 30 hikes under my belt of this fabulous trek, I can present this content knowing that there is still plenty of eye candy here, even though it was authored in SD. Here's what you get:
OVERVIEW: 2 aerial turns around the mountain, the first with narrative information and fascinating tidbits, the second just taking in the exquisite topography of the upper mountain's glaciers and stone. THE TRAIL ON FOOT is broken into 7 sections, capturing the nuances of the fall of 2005 on this timeless trail. Finally, I present a short film entitled won•der•land to tie it all together, set to original music. Because there is so much material that invites multiple viewing, I've made the rental available for one week. Please enjoy this labor of love!
