A Night with the First Female thru hiker of the CDT
March 8, 2017, 6:30pm - March 8, 2017, 8:30pm
In 1978 when 19% of the Continental Divide Trail was "suitable for hiking" Lynn Wisehart and Jeannie Smith set out to become the first women to hike its length. This is the story of their almost seven month adventure. The Rocky Mountain Women's Expedition would prove to be a harrowing journey, full of adventure, self discovery, and experiencing one of the wildest places in North America- the Continental Divide. The presentation will follow Lynn and Jeannie's story, told first hand by Jean Ella, who since her hike in 1978, has gone on to accomplish even more amazing outdoor adventure challenges. Jean will share their story, discuss the planning and coordination necessary to undertake a hike of this magnitude, way before there were GPS's, Phone Apps for hiking, guidebooks, or light weight gear. The night will end with a question and answer session and the opportunity to learn from one of long distance hiking's unsung heroes. We know after seeing the presentation, on your next outdoor adventure, you may just find yourself asking- "what would Jean Ella do?".
