Wow if its true I want to learn how he does it. I figure he wouldn’t start hiking until daylight and quit at dark for best light with cameras. So at best he starts at 6 a.m. and ends at 8 p.m. so 14 hours of hiking. If at one point it took him 3 hours to go 1 mile that leaves 11 hours to travel the other 39 miles so he would need to keep pace at 3.54 miles an hour. Not so bad on most of trail 1 but what about the rest of the trails and in pouring down rain? Not to mention if you read the article he stops, takes pictures, takes notes, analyzes situations. So really the pace of 3.54 mph has to be faster to allow him time to stop and do all the things he does.
