Series Description: The Continental Divide Trail provides a 3,100-mile scenic backdrop -from the mountain lakes and grizzly bears of Glacier National Park to the crimson sunsets and lava flows of El Malpais National Monument. In WALKING THE GREAT DIVIDE, award-winning filmmaker Mark Flagler embarks on a six-month journey to traverse the primitive backcountry trail that stretches from Mexico to Canada. The film captures Flagler's trials and triumphs as he braves high-altitude trekking, intense desert heat, cross-country navigation and deep canyons in New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana. On the trail, Flagler also meets fellow endurance hikers, takes in spectacular scenery and discovers hidden jewels, and highlights some of the issues that have surrounded the "King of Trails" since its inception.
