EVENT: Barney "Scout" Mann's The Continental Divide TrailPosted by Adventure 16 | 10.25.2018
Join us for an evening of stories and photos with Barney "Scout" Mann – author of the The Continental Divide Trail: Exploring America’s Wilderness Trail.
Mann will showcase the best from the book’s 250 spectacular contemporary images, its first-ever published historical photos and its text of the saga of the Continental Divide Trail. You’ll feel just like you were sitting around at a campfire, your boots dusty from the 3,100-mile path. This beautifully produced volume makes accessible the highest and most remote of America’s “Triple Crown” trails--following the Rocky Mountains from Canada to Mexico along the Continental Divide, the backbone of America. The event is perfect for anyone interested in the outdoors or who someday dreams of heading out on the trail.
