Adventure Speaker Series: Neal Kirby- Hiking in Tasmania

According to Olympia Mountaineer Neal Kirby, the Overland Track in Tasmania is more than a walk. It's an extraordinary journey through the heart of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park going back to millions of years of rugged geology and glacier scarred landscape. It provides a host of diverse animals and plants. Six Mountaineers from various chapters took six days, covering a total distance of 43 miles, with approximately another 10 miles for side trips climbing the Labyrinth and Mount Acropolis."

Join the Olympia Mountaineers for our evening socials, featuring speakers guaranteed to inspire your next adventure. The events occur on the first Wednesday of the month, October through May (excluding November) at the Friends Meeting House.
  Doors open at 5:30pm, and our potluck dinner starts promptly at 6pm. Bring a dish to share, as well as a plate and flatware. Or skip the potluck, grab a hot drink, check out our Mountaineers library and the audiovisual presentation or pick up branch classes and events information. Announcements are at 6:45pm, and our Adventure Speaker presentations start at 7pm, followed by a Q&A.
