The Harbor Springs Area Historical Society is excited to kick off its 2016 Harbor History Talk series with Josh and Molly Baker on Thursday, February 18, at 5:30 pm. The Bakers, local residents and owners of the Outfitter, will present “Nineteen Days on Denali,” their experience climbing the highest peak in North America. From the prep (logistics, gear and training) to daily life on a glacier, the Bakers will speak to the challenges and unexpected rewards of their unguided expedition.
Many may know Josh and Molly through the Outfitter where they provide customers gear for the great outdoors. But the couple brings an extensive background in outdoor education, particularly from their twelve years as co-directors of the outdoor education program at Colgate University. In addition to their Adventure (with a capital A) of a lifetime climbing Denali, the Bakers will talk about the importance of seeking life’s everyday adventures (with a small a).
Please join us for a wonderful presentation which will include a real, old-fashioned slide show of amazing photographs from their climb. The Bakers’ talk will begin at 5:30 pm in the second floor Anton Library of the Harbor Springs History Museum, 349 E Main Street, and refreshments will be provided. Admission to the talk is $5 for adults and free for current Historical Society members. Reservations are encouraged and can be made by calling the Historical Society at (231) 526-9771.
