Over 12 mostly leisurely days, Carey Kish and his wife Fran embarked on their dream backpacking trek traversing Baxter State Park south to north. Enjoying the scenic wilderness thru-hike, they combined at least a dozen trails and took in every fabulous vista. Four food drops stashed along the way, nights spent in lean-tos and one cabin meant reasonably light packs. There was only one problem…join us for great photos and stories.
Co-sponsored by Appalachian Mountain Club, Maine Chapter.
Come and enjoy an adventure told with brilliant photography.
In June 2013 Ron and Lee Davis spent 10 days paddling the Canning River from the Brooks Range to the Beaufort Sea, north of the Arctic Circle in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge wilderness of Alaska in a quest for adventure and wildlife experiences.
This rigorous trip taxed the endurance and outdoor skills of the 8-person party, but provided sightings of wolves, foxes, caribou, arctic nesting birds, and a profusion of brilliant tundra wildflowers.
Join Orono’s plant guru, Claire Ackroyd, on an outdoor adventure in search of edibles. We may even find something to cook up and eat at the close of the program.
