"Wander a whole summer if you can. Time will not be taken from the sum of life. Instead of shortening, it will definitely lengthen it and make you truly immortal." —John Muir

Anyone with a healthy amount of time that is looking for a new trail to backpack might want to watch the video above. It's the trailer to an unfinished documentary called Mile ... Mile and a Half, about a group that backpacks the roughly 215-mile John Muir Trail over the course of a month. If the views shown from the Yosemite Valley up to Mount Whitney seem worth a vacation, check out johnmuirtrail.org for more information.

For more on the movie, head over to Kickstarter, where the group is looking for funding so they can make an 87-minute film about their trip.
