Hiking the Grand Canyon

Earlier this year Pete McBride and Kevin Fedarko walked 875 miles along the Grand Canyon. National Geographic has created a wonderful story map which allows you to follow this epic journey through the Grand Canyon.

As you scroll through Hiking the Grand Canyon you get to follow the route of this 70 day hike on a gloriously rendered map of the journey. As you progress through the hike the map includes stunning video footage and photos that the two hikers captured on their expedition. Text overlays also keep you up to date with the trials and tribulations experienced on this epic adventure.

The map itself provides a beautiful oblique relief view of the National Park. The map even changes color as you progress through the story. Check out the wonderful rendering of snow as Pete and Kevin battle the elements on their wonderful adventure.
