In August 2016, we completed a 12-day backpacking trip around Mt. Rainier. As a family of 9. It was an adventure, and a challenge. Because of blood sugar issues and concerns about whether or not our 3 & 1/2 year old could finish, we considered quitting.
I’m so glad we decided to keep going. It was an INCREDIBLE trip, and now I have a video to prove it. 😉
This week I compiled and edited the video footage and photos… and wow (!!!) my eyes have been opened to the time and focus that goes into video editing. Why did it take so long? Well, one of our two SD cards was corrupted, and it took nearly 2 months to recover some of the data, then Doug worked on a video and was nearly done, when his computer crashed and we completely lost that file. We both felt discouraged and haven’t touched it for at least a month.
Finally, last week, I took the files to make this video.
Now we (finally!) have a Wonderland Trail video of our own. 🙂 I hope you can set aside an hour and enjoy some of these special memories, with us. After Fisher’s birth, this was a highlight of 2016 for our family.
Come, spend an hour with our family on the Wonderland Trail, and let me know what you think. ~Jess
