WHAT: "Adventure Travel -- Peak Thrills on Three Continents"

WHEN: 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, January 23, 2019

WHERE: Eaton Canyon Nature Center, 1750 N. Altadena Dr., Pasadena

Combining images and stories from Asia, Africa and South America, veteran mountaineer Jim Vanderaa will transport us to Mt. Everest Base Camp, Mt. Kilimanjaro and Ecuador’s Mt. Cayambe.

His 92-mile trek to Everest’s base camp with only a Sherpa guide
took 16 days. Although his route in 2014 was not the usual one,
he found it more accessible than people realize, and can offer
travel tips to anyone considering the venture. His ascent of 19,341-foot
Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania included a visit to a Masai village, and a
fivc-day safari through Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro National
Parks. Peaks scaled in South America’s Andes mountain range
included 18,996-foot. Mt. Cayambe. (photo)

A social reception at 7 p.m. precedes the 7:30 program sponsored by the Sierra Club Angeles Chapter’s Forest Committee. The program is free and the public is welcome. For information, email Don Bremner at or John Monsen at

Directions to Eaton Canyon: From the 210 Freeway in Pasadena, take the Altadena Drive exit (if westbound on the 210, take the Sierra Madre off-ramp, and at the bottomr go west another few blocks to Altadena Drive),
drive north toward the mountains about a mile, and 500 feet after crossing New York Drive, turn right into Eaton Canyon Park. The Nature Center is on the left from the parking area.
