Selfie Time-Lapse: 1,700 Miles Hiked, 90lbs Lost, Epic Beard Grown

Self-portrait time-lapses are few and far between, because the patience required to create one of note is immense. Most of them are picture-per-day time-lapses that require the subject to maintain their dedication to the project for months on end, and the subject him or herself has to go through some amazing change or do something really cool –like lip synch a Queen song… for example — in the meantime.

Hiker Kolby Kirk (aka. Condor) didn’t sing along to a song, but what he did do is still pretty awesome. A couple of years ago, he hiked 1,700 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail, reaching the end of his journey 152 days later, 90lbs lighter and one epic beard better.

We highly suggest you watch all the way to the end, because there’s a fun little surprise there, and if you like this kind of thing — i.e. awesome beard growth, self-portrait time-lapses and many miles worth of travel done on foot — check out Christoph Rehage’s 2,886 mile time-lapse journey here.
