LIBRARY LAUNCHES NEW PROGRAM: ARMCHAIR ADVENTURES
Wednesday, February 13
In July of 2005, Alan Burke, avid hiker and superintendent of Yelm schools, joined with friends to climb the highest peaks in Africa and Europe. Join him on the summits and in between via his slide show and stories. In addition to summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,340′) in Tanzania and Mt. Elbrus (18,510′) in southern Russia, Alan also traveled through those countries, visiting Arusha and Moshi in Tanzania, and Moscow in Russia. The group also participated in a four-day Serengeti safari, and an auto trip through the heavily fortified Baksan Valley of Russia, near the infamous Chechnya area of that country.
