Figure it Out is a metaphor for life itself. Nearly everyone can relate to the struggle of figuring out what to do in stressful situations. In the wilderness we realize that we are the only ones standing in our way. This series documents a thru-hike on one of America’s most challenging routes, the Hayduke Trail. To call the Hayduke a trail is a bit misleading; it is an 800-mile-long route through the desert, snaking across canyon country in southern Utah and northern Arizona. Alex Maier hiked it in search of a deeper understanding of life itself.
