REI Fresno: Backpacking the Grand Canyon
May 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Please register below to join an inspirational talk on Backpacking the Grand Canyon at REI Fresno.
No matter your age, backpacking the Grand Canyon can be a life-changing experience. Co-founder of the Grand Canyon Challenge, Chris Casado is passionate about exploring one of our world’s natural wonders. He’s spent countless days hiking into hidden gorges, following natural springs, and sleeping on the beaches of the Colorado River. Join Chris on a digital journey of his favorite Grand Canyon adventure, a rugged 35 mile loop with a trip to the Colorado. Learn the nuts and bolts of preparing for a multi-day Grand Canyon trek, including permits, trail options, gear, water, safety and weather considerations.
Our goal is to inspire and motivate individuals of all ages, from 11 to 69+, to get out and experience the back country, and sow the seed of hope and conviction that people of all backgrounds, sizes, and experience levels can reach and accomplish anything they put their mind to – including backpacking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
