Programs to see: Trekking in Nepal, Hiking with Dogs

A couple of adventurous programs this week and next that you might not want to miss…

This Wednesday evening, April 2nd, at the monthly meeting of the Maine Outdoor Adventure Club in Portland, take in a great program “Nepal: A Special Place” with Pat Johnson. Pat and some MOAC friends ventured to the mystical kingdom of Nepal last October for the trek of a lifetime into Everest Base Camp, climbing 18,000-foot Kala Patar en route. Come on along for some outstanding Himalayan scenery.

Next Tuesday evening, April 8th, the Maine Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club will present journalist and adventurer Aislinn Sarnacki and “Canine Hiking Buddies & Bangor-Area Treks.” Aislinn will talk about hiking with dogs, trail etiquette and gear to pack for your canine hiking buddy, as well as what problems can arise on the trail and how you might handle them. Next, through videos, photos and maps, she’ll suggest trails for all skill levels that are located within an hour of Bangor.
