Video Highlights 2021

With much more home time during the pandemic, my main hobby was improving my video editing and (expensive) video gear.

I put together a short highlights reel from 2021. And plan on doing the same each year forward.

This one includes some bikepacking and travel scenes, as well. Two of my other personal interests.

In 2021 the most watched video on the BestHike YouTube channel was a short teaser for my SURVIVE the West Coast Trail playlist.

Panorama Ridge | Garibaldi Lake B.C.

I’m hooked on the videos produced by World Wild Hearts.

We counted 6 lakes on our way up to the Panorama Ridge viewpoint and also saw the black tusk to our left in all its glory.

The whole route was about 32 kilometers and took us just over 10 hours to complete. …

Overall it was one of the longest day hikes we’ve done, but the views from the top were worth it!
