Illustrated talk on mountain journeys

Soul of Wilderness, Mountain Journeys in Western BC and Alaska Nov. 17

Soul of Wilderness, Mountain Journeys in Western BC and Alaska, an illustrated lecture with John Baldwin and Linda Bily, begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17 at the Courtenay and District Museum.

Partners, co-authors and photographers Baldwin and Bily have ventured into the magical landscapes of the Coast Mountains.  Travelling by foot and ski, their goal was simply to experience and document as much of these remote places as possible – to wander across the high meadows, ski from mountain tops and revel in the artful patterns of new-fallen snow.

The resulting coffee-table book is sure to inspire readers to discover and connect with the intense beauty of this mountain wilderness. Admission to the evening is $5 per Historical Society member; $6 non-members (plus GST). Advance tickets recommended.

The Courtenay and District Museum is located at 207 Fourth St. in downtown Courtenay. FMI or to purchase tickets: 250-334-0686 ext. 5.
