Science Elevated Series: Classic Colorado Hikes

June 9 @ 5:30 pm 7:00 pm

With Dr. Jon Kedrowski. In the majority of the program, Kedrowski will discuss exploring the mountains and high mountain lakes of Colorado to excite people about the summer hiking season. His discussion and slideshow will focus on trip planning and well as weather and climate conditions in Colorado for the recreational hiker and will include information on safety and backcountry preparedness.  Jon’s book – Classic Colorado Hikes – will be featured to show the audience some of the best places to explore the high mountains in Colorado.  In his book, some of the best lakes, high mountain peaks, swimming spots and even “Wild Ice” skating will all be part of the journey in this multimedia presentation!

The last 10 minutes of the program, Jon will tease his recent expeditions to both Everest and Winter K2. He will discuss the strategy, risk management, and weather considerations for climbing these 8000m giants and even how you can get involved in visiting the Himalayas and Karakoram with his company, Dr. Jon’s Adventures.
