Social: National Geographic | Revisiting the Ansel Adams Wilderness

Does this count as training for the JMT? Perhaps. Join me at National Geographic for this speaker event featuring photographer Peter Essick, who will be showing and discussing pictures of the Ansel Adams Wilderness. While this is in April, I'd suggest getting tickets early -- tickets for NatGeo events tend to go rather quickly. I picked up mine already.

RSVP so I know to look out for you, but you will have to go to the National Geographic website to purchase a ticket for the event. Tickets are $27 for members, $30 for non-members.

If you want to enjoy a drink before the show, let's plan to gather at Barcode [masked]th St NW, Washington, DC 20036) around 5:30. We'll head over to National Geographic slightly before so we can get good seats. (The show starts at 7:30.)

From the website:

Journey with award-winning nature photographer Peter Essick through the Ansel Adams Wilderness—a place in the Sierra Nevada named for the legendary American photographer who immortalized its stark, craggy beauty. Essick will share with you his own evocative photographs from the new National Geographic book The Ansel Adams Wilderness, and you’ll enjoy images of other powerful natural landscapes he has documented. A contributor to National Geographic for 25 years, Peter Essick was recently named one of the world’s 40 most influential nature photographers by Outdoor Photography. Introduction by Jamie Williams, President of The Wilderness Society.

Reception to follow. Copies of The Ansel Adams Wilderness will be available for sale and signing.

Co-sponsored with National Geographic Books and The Wilderness Society.

    Hooray! I'm excited to see all the interest in this event. I think it will be a good one. As we get closer, we can sketch out plans for drinks before. Barcode is a good option and close to National Geographic.
