Is the border actually lawless? This father and son are hiking all 1,954 miles to find out.

Nearly 2,000 miles of hot, dry and mostly inhospitable terrain, the United States-Mexico border is not a top tourism destination.

Instead, it is a landscape in which one is more likely to find people who are compelled to be there: immigrants crossing into the United States illegally; growing numbers of Border Patrol agents assigned to police and secure the area; vigilantes hoping to stanch the flow of illegal migration and activists working to support it.

Paul and Nick Pineda, a father and son duo from the Seattle area, have set their sights on the border for another reason: they plan to walk it in its entirety, specifically for the unique challenges it presents.

Part political activism, father-son bonding trip, and outdoors adventure, their trip began Wednesday at the southern edge of San Diego, the latest of a small group of trekkers drawn to the border for a complex and emotional mix of personal and political reasons.
