Travel Lecture –Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail with Anne O’Regan

Monday, October 2, 7-9 PM – Mechanics’ Hall, 519 Congress St.

A Slide Presentation of Hiking the full Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to the Canadian Border along the top the mountain ranges followed by refreshments and conversation. Anne O’Regan presents. “Tamed:  A City Girl Walks From Mexico To Canada On The Pacific Crest Trail.” MCMA’s final travel lecture will be by Anne O’Regan who left her home in Boston and traveled west to do what, on average, only 300 people accomplish each year.  Starting in Campo, California (on the Mexican border), she backpacked north for 2,650 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT).  Traveling through California, Oregon and Washington, she completed her thru-hike five months later in Manning Park, Canada.  Join us as Anne shares tales from the trail, and offers a unique visual presentation gleaned from over 3,000 photographs taken along the way. Anne has thru-hiked other long trails, including the Colorado Trail, the John Muir (twice), and Vermont’s Long Trail (twice).  Now that she’s a part-time Mainer, she can’t wait to discover Maine’s trails! Anne is the author of Tamed.  A City Girl Walks From Mexico To Canada On The Pacific Crest Trail.  Her book is available on her website:  www.anneoregan.com  and will also be available at her presentation.
