Everest Lodge-to-Lodge Trek in Nepal

Presenter: Keith Watling, AMC Boston 4-season Hiking/Backpacking Trip Leader

 

Join us for Keith Watling's slide show on the award winning Everest Lodge to Lodge Trek that he and his partner Judith Watson undertook with REI Adventures in Nepal during late September 2014.

 

After arriving in Kathmandu, Nepal's capital, and following a short unforgettable flight into the World's Most Dangerous Airport at Lukla, high in the Himalayas, the 9 day/ 50 mile trek combined simple and rustic accommodations with an immersion in the gentle and colorful Buddhist culture while providing spectacular views of Mount Everest and other legendary Himalayan peaks. In addition to visiting must-see sights, such as the magnificent Tengboche Monastery and the bustling village of Namche Bazaar, there was time enough to venture off the beaten path to visit more remote and secluded villages, including Khumjung, where Sir Edmund Hillary helped build the region's first school and Thame, birthplace of Norgay Tenzing who accompanied Sir Edmund on the historic first ascent of Mount Everest in 1953. Experience the awe-inspiring magnificence of the world's highest peaks and soak in the magic of Nepal and the Everest region in this breathtaking recount of a once in a lifetime adventure.

Volunteering for the National Park Service: Natural Bridges National Monument, Utah

Presenter: Ron Janowitz

Please join us for a fascinating evening as AMC member and National Park Service volunteer, Ron Janowitz, discusses his experience volunteering at the Natural Bridges National Monument in Southern Utah. 

Ron spent last fall working at this spectacular park for three months, and will share breathtaking photography and fascinating stories from his experience behind the scenes. Topics include how to get “hired” as a volunteer, as well as the duties and living arrangements of volunteers, the history, geology and archeology of this remote and unique area. 

Natural Bridges is remote and famous for its three massive bridges at the bottoms of steep canyons and remote Ancestral Puebloan ruins, occupied between 2000 and 750 years ago. The park is off the grid, and relies on solar panels for electricity. There are more mule deer and jackrabbits than people in San Juan County.

AMC's Cold River Camp - A Jewel of a Facility in a Gem of a Location

Presenter: Gary Munson

 

Imagine a camp in the White Mountains that has been providing guests a wonderful outdoor adventure experience as part of the AMC for nearly 100 years, with a lodge, comfortable rustic cabins, and delicious food, and that is only a 3-4 hour drive from the Boston area. A camp with a hiking emphasis, but from whence you can also swim, paddle, bike or just relax in the beautiful surroundings. A camp that is community oriented and family friendly. That's Cold River Camp.

This picture presentation will tell the story of Cold River Camp -  the Camp facilities, program, hiking opportunities, interesting traditions, location, lovely surroundings, and along the way address the question of "Is Cold River Camp a great place for me, family and friends?" We invite you to learn about this charming camp that is in Boston's extended back yard.
