November 7 Chapter Meeting - Program 7:30

Backpacking Wyoming's Wind   River Range

and the Grandeur of the Cirque of the Towers

Presented by Roger Janezic

The majestic Wind River Range, located in western Wyoming, is a part of the Rockies whose dramatic scenery and challenging mountains have made it a major destination for outdoor adventurers. One such adventurer is Roger Janezic, whose 2016 backpack to this wilderness area will be the subject of Genesee Valley ADK’s November 7 program.

With the aid of copious photographs that he took on his trip, Roger will discuss the unique geology and fauna of the Wind River Range. One such feature that will get special attention is the dramatic Cirque of the Towers, a spectacular circular valley surrounded by steep granite mountains, some of which are 10,000 to 12,000 feet in height. And for those who may be inspired to experience this adventure for themselves, Roger will also cover his gear and the preparations he made for the trip. This is a program that you surely will not want to miss.

Roger Janezic is a father of three, an engineer and a resident of Rochester since 1988. He has backpacked extensively throughout the northeast United States as well as some stints in Wyoming and South America. He has taken his children backpacking every year since they were old enough to walk. He believes as John Muir wrote, "that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity". His favorite historical person is Abraham Lincoln and his favorite contemporary person is his wife, Lori Bryce.

November 7 - Workshop 6:30

Shooting Panoramic Landscapes

Presented by Don Cochran

When you are exploring some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes, you may want to record what you see for sharing or for display at home. Don Cochran has been shooting panoramas of the Adirondacks and other special places for over 35 years. He is a former Kodak advertising photographer and is currently a freelance Architectural photographer as well as a professor at RIT. Don’s panorama workshop will show you several ways to shoot panoramas on your DSLR or iPhone and print the images on a wall or publish in a book. 

Don will present several different cameras and printed examples of his panoramas, as well as a couple of recently published coffee table books (for more information, go to http://www.blurb.com/books/8809273-new-york-trails).

The panoramas Don will show as examples are from hiking trips all over New York, Colorado, California and the United Kingdom.
