An Illustration of the G.E.T. from Phoenix to Albuquerque


DON'T MISS:

Kevin Manning's full-length video presentation documenting his (very late season) fall 2011 thru-hike from Albuquerque to Phoenix. Blizzard warning!

Team KrudMonkey's very late spring 2011 eastbound hike (heat, drought, and... wildlife galore). View the full-length movie trailer here.

(Late season travel not recommended, but these adventurous souls had a blast anyway, it seems!)
