Trio of friends take a tough hike on Catalina Island to recreate the macOS Catalina wallpaper
A few months ago, YouTuber and photographer Andrew Levitt teamed up with friends Jacob Phillips and Taylor Gray on a week-long road trip to try and recreate all of the default Apple wallpapers included in macOS. .
Just weeks after the video, Apple released macOS Catalina to the public, giving Levitt and his friends an additional wallpaper to recreate. The task was more difficult this time, however, as the default macOS Catalina wallpaper features the remote northern tip of Santa Catalina Island off the southern coast of California.
To get there, Levitt and his friends took a ferry to Catalina Island and hiked over eight hours across the island, with camping gear and other supplies.
The trio of friends finally reached the tip of the island and, despite the windy conditions, managed to capture an almost identical version of the default macOS Catalina wallpaper with a drone.
While hiking to the ferry terminal, Levitt and his friends were pulled over by a police officer and learned that night hikes on Catalina Island are apparently prohibited. Fortunately, the policeman was nice and just escorted them to the other side of the island. In short, a fascinating video.
