The photography is quite well done and creative; there are shots that zoom out, to demonstrate the majesty of the place, or zoom in, to focus on a character. The techniques are similar to the skill in a Ken Burns movie. The music is also appropriate for the scenery and mimics both the inspiration and the introspection of months on the trail. The music was so good, in fact, that I started checking about buying a soundtrack.
Prior to watching "Six Million Steps," I had considered the idea of hiking a portion of the PCT, some day, or some summer, or with some friends—maybe if and when the right opportunity came along. After watching the movie, I have committed to hiking the PCT. To paraphrase what a variety of articulate hikers in the movie have said, "Don't put off the journey for too long; we don't know how much time we have."
I urge everyone to watch the movie, get inspired, and hike the trail. Hope to see you there.
