Talk about life changing. Hiker Andy Davidhazy made the grueling 2,600 mile journey on the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada in five months and took a selfie of himself at every mile along the way. Beside the changing landscape, what’s most shocking is how much weight he loses.

The resulting time-lapse is posted to Davidhazy’s web site at  The photographer also plans to turn his journey into a shortfilm.

Davidhazy lost some 50 pounds in five months hiking  from Campo, California near the Mexico border to Manning British, Columbia on the Pacific Crest Trail. But as he writes on his blog, the end of the trail is the beginning of the story.
