Elina Osborne is a filmmaker based in Auckland, New Zealand. She describes herself as a fan of “long walks.” But that’s a bit of an understatement. Osborne has thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) - a hiking trail that spans 2,650 miles (4,265 kilometers) from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon, and Washington. And she vlogged her entire journey. Hiking for months on end requires carrying all your equipment, so Osborne made her videos with the lightweight Sony Alpha 7S II and the Sony 35mm f/2.8. Since that epic trip, she’s done other crazy long hikes and vlogged those adventures as well. Check out the video below to see her first week on the PCT!
