Yooper Tours: on the North Country Trail. Alex Maier hikes 550 miles across Michigan’s Upper Peninsula on the North Country Trail. He breaks the hike up into nine sections to experience the UP in all of its seasons. He finds that the increasing difficulty of hiking in deep snow offers more life lessons and time to reflect. Many Americans couldn’t tell you where Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is located. It holds true wilderness and an opportunity to reconnect with the nature. This production reveals the beauty of a forgotten land, while exploring the benefits of being in nature. Official Selection 2017: Fresh Coast Film Fest.
