Professional photographer Daniel Baylis sees his relationship with the Trail as an extension of himself. A west coast native and nature enthusiast, Daniel grew up surrounded by the serenity of the outdoors, and went on to hike trails around the world. He believes that walking in nature can be a moving experience with the power to calm, teach and transcend differences – ultimately to unite us all.
“I think in our day-to-day life we’re pretty focused on our deliverables, and how we can be more productive. The Trail – wilderness in general – really is an antidote to that. The Great Trail is a great way for Canadians to access wilderness.”
