Wandering Thru is a short film from Terasu about one woman’s experience thru-hiking long distance trails. After completing the Pacific Crest Trail, Julie Hotz set her eyes on the seldom-traveled, lesser-known Pacific Northwest Trail. She rode her bicycle from Los Angeles, California, to the trailhead in Montana. Then, she took to the trail, which crosses three national parks and seven national forests—talk about scenic.
