Tahoe Outdoors: Adventure slide show series
The Lake Tahoe Adventure Slide Show Series kicks off this Friday (Dec. 9) at Squaw Valley with a talk and slideshow by the legendary Fred Beckey. In his late 80’s, Fred talks with boyish enthusiasm still about the mountains. He will share tales and photos from his favorite climbs, many of which are on your lifelong tick list. Beckey has achieved enduring recognition as the most imaginative, persistent, and thorough explorer and mountain investigator of the Cascade Range Wilderness. He was noted as “one of America’s most colorful and eccentric mountaineers,” and is unofficially recognized as the all-time world-record holder for the number of first ascents credited to one man. In addition to being the author of the Cascade Alpine Guide series (V1, V2, V3), Beckey is also the author of Mountains of North America, The Range of Glaciers: Exploration and Survey of the North Cascades, and a personal narrative, Challenge of the North Cascades. Bring everyone you know, especially those who think or act like they are “washed up”. Yeah right, in your 40’s or 50’s? Fred was just getting going. The free show will be at 7 p.m. Friday at the Oly Plaza Bar at Squaw Valley. Sponsored by The Backcountry store in Truckee.
