  1. Armchair Travelogue to Yellowstone
    • Start time: 06:30pm
    • End date: Thursday, May 25th
    • End time: 08:00pm
    • If you missed Jonathan Rundell’s presentation on Glacier National Park, you’ll want to mark this date on your calendar! Join Jonathan and five Maine and New Hampshire backpackers for a “virtual” trip as they spend eight nights on the trail in Wyoming and Montana.

      We’ll start with five nights in the northwest corner of Yellowstone National Park— including an ascent of 11,000 foot Electric Peak. After one night off the trail, we’ll continue on the spectacular and rugged Beartooth Plateau Loop just outside the park, where we’ll pass numerous pristine alpine lakes and tackle the navigational challenges of off-trail travel in this high-altitude wilderness. We'll also take a quick drive through Yellowstone National Park, stopping to enjoy its abundant wildlife, waterfalls, and geothermal features.

      Jonathan Rundell is a long-time Scarborough resident, avid hiker, and photographer. This event is free to attend; refreshments will also be served.
