TRAIL TALK FROM AN OLD DIRT KICKER

Presented by J. R. Harris

J. R. Harris
J. R. Harris, an AMC member, is a well-known explorer and the author of "Way Out There: Adventures of a Wilderness Trekker." From his origins in New York City, J. R. has been roaming, mostly alone and unsupported, from Arctic Alaska to the Australian Outback, from Patagonia to the Pyrenees, and across the many "lands" (Greenland, Lapland, Iceland, Newfoundland, Finland, and New Zealand) for more than 50 years. He is still an active and enthusiastic trekker and is committed to encouraging everyone, especially young people and people of color, to experience the benefits that come from being in the great outdoors, and to support and protect our natural environments. J. R.'s upbeat presentation, "Trail Talk from an Old Dirt Kicker," is enhanced with numerous photo images to illustrate the "top ten" topics his audiences are most curious about regarding wilderness travel, sharing lessons he learned along the way. He will address each topic, such as planning, wildlife, fear, being alone, fitness, weather, etc., within the context of one of his many extraordinary journeys.

LOOKING AHEAD TO NOVEMBER

BACKPACKING WYOMING'S WIND RIVER RANGE

AND THE GRANDEUR OF THE CIRQUE OF THE TOWERS

Presented by Roger Janezic

 Outdoor adventurer Roger Janezic will present a program about the exciting backpacking trip he took in July 2016 with his 3 kids. His primary focus will be on the Wind River Range, a wild, beautiful, unique mountain range in western Wyoming that is inaccessible for all but about three months a year. Roger will use the backpacking trip to discuss the characteristics of this majestic public treasure that somewhat takes a back seat to its more famous neighbor to the northwest, Yellowstone Park. He’ll cover such topics as the geology of the Winds, the local fauna, including cutthroat trout, the imposing Pingora tower, popular with climbers, and the equipment and preparations for the trip. This is a program you will surely not want to miss.
