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.

LOOKING AHEAD TO December



CHAPTER MEETING, DECEMBER 12, 7:30 P.M.

Bhutan – Land of the Thunder Dragon


Paul Garsin will
share his experience visiting and trekking in Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon, in October 2017 with Pack, Paddle, and Ski. Bhutan is a landlocked kingdom that was never conquered or colonized and was part of the ancient Silk Road between Tibet and Southeast Asia. The country is high in the mountains of the snow-capped Himalayas. It is a unique, amazing and exotic country; it remained closed to the outside world until 1974. Television was not allowed in Bhutan until 1999. Their Buddhist culture remains largely untouched by outside influence.


The trek was a 75-mile hike in Jigme Dorji National Park, walking by Chomolhari, the Mountain Goddess, at 24,000 ft, through remote villages, virgin forests, along emerald green rivers, by crystal lakes, and above the tree line over two passes at around 16,000 ft.
Paul’s travels included tours of cultural sites, including the famous Tiger’s Nest, in and around the town of Paro and the capital, Thimphu. The images and the information shared will attempt to illustrate the cultural wonders and the unsurpassed beauty of this country.

December 12 - Workshop 6:30

Snow is on the
