Episode 59: The Man Who Hiked It All

In Episode 59, I speak with Bart Smith (aka Infinite Dust) who was recently featured in Backpacker Magazine as “The Man Who Hiked It All”.  Since 1992, Bart has hiked nearly 35,000 miles on 30 of America’s National Scenic and Historic Trails – completing the last of the Trails by October 2nd, 2018 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the National Trails Act.

In the show, Bart tells us about his backcountry photography, the coffee table book he completed with Earl Shaffer on the Appalachian Trail, the photo book he did with Karen Berger on the Pacific Crest Trail, and shares some of his favorite moments capturing scenes in the backcountry. 

So if you have the thru-hiking bug, and want to learn more about our National Scenic Trails – now is you chance to hear from the “Man Who Hiked It All.”  You can also click to Bart’s website at WalkingDownADream to see his photography and learn more about his travels.
