Man Walks 14,000 Miles From Argentina to Alaska

"A little perspective," writes Harrison in a Facebook post, the platform where he documented the entirety of his journey North.

Holly “Cargo” Harrison is proof that determination will take you far – literally. The 58-year-old man just finished a 14,181-mile trek from Ushuaia, Argentina to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. The journey took him only 530 days. And despite having encountered countless harsh climates, suffered a heart attack, and fought off a grizzly bear, the man still made it in an incredibly fast time.

While backcountry skiing on Mt. Shasta on Sunday, mountain guide Chris Carr discovered a monster—at least the aftermath of one. Rising up from the Bunny Lake trailhead was a 30-foot wall of snow created by a "100-year avalanche" that barreled down the side of Mt. Shasta. What made this slide so unique and historic was the sheer length of its slide path. The walls were so big that you could ski down them. According to the Redding Record Searchlight, Carr, in his 25 years of living in the area,
