Ultra Hiker

This photo taken by Philip Carcia on April 30, 2019, shows Carcia atop Mount Jackson as he completed his ninth consecutive month of hiking each of New Hampshire’s mountains taller than 4,000 feet. On July 7, Carcia became only the second hiker to cram the grid into a single year, finishing in 319 days and beating the previous record by five weeks. He says he sees himself not as a conqueror but a pioneer, giving himself to the mountains he loves.
