A Photographic Tour of the Pacific Northwest

Date: Thursday, September 15
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: H. Dutcher Community Room

Join Mo & Jim Coutant, photographers and longtime chapter members, for a brief recap of the Pacific Northwest portion of their cross-country trip last year. The couple explored the scenery while trying to avoid the smoke from the wildfires. As most of the country seemed to be in the smoke zone, exploring the coast became the best option. Eventually, Mo and Jim had to head home, and checked off their list a couple of new National Parks along the way. See the great scenery of the National Parks and coastline and learn how the Coutants travelled across the county with no reservations or real plan! Co-sponsored by the Adirondack Mountain Club. Seating is limited and registration is required. Please register online through this link.
