Into the Canyon: Between River and Rim

Join adventure writer Kevin Fedarko on an epic quest, on foot, through the entire length of the Grand Canyon—not “rim to rim” as has been tackled by many—but 750 miles “end to end.” More people have walked on the surface of the moon than have completed this treacherous journey! Hiking over 100 days, Kevin and photographer/filmmaker Pete McBride traversed mostly along the goat trail, through slot canyons, blinding sun, and snow. Part sufferfest, part glorious trek, their expedition sheds light on the health and future of this national treasure and invites us to contemplate the value of wild spaces.
