The photographs have now been published in a book that provides informative tips for you on why, how, and where to walk from the Long Trail in Vermont to the Inca Trail in Peru to Cotswold Way in England to the Tour du Mont Blanc and places in between! Come be inspired by their travels and begin planning your own hikes when spring weather finally arrives.
