Explore Speaker Series: Trekking Across Western Mongolia
June 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
On June 20, 2019, at 7pm in the Canmore Civic Centre, we are pleased to welcome the third of our Explore Speaker Series guest speakers.
Caeli Barron and Ella Valge-Saar will be presenting:
Stories of their 2016 walk across the western corner of Mongolia
In the summer of 2016, Caeli Barron and Ella Valge-Saar decided to walk 1100km over 54 days across the arid mountainous western corner of Mongolia. Starting in the Gobi Desert they traveled through the Altai Mountains near the Kazakstan and Russian borders, and ended in the dry plains of the Uvs province. Seasonal changes, access to water and food, and moving through foreign terrain and cultures transformed their route along the way. Join them on June 20th at the Canmore Museum at 7:00 to hear about their journey and recount their life changing hilarious stories.
The Explore Speaker Series is free to attend.
