Fire and Ice: Climbing and Skiing in Homer’s Local Wilderness Areas

October 8, 2014

KBRR and Lake Clark National Park hosted a brown bag lunch lecture celebrating the 50th anniversary of the national Wilderness Act. Chuck Lindsay highlighted his backcountry adventures on  glaciers, mountains, and volcanoes in wilderness area surrounding Homer.

Several wilderness areas offering limitless solitude and adventure  exist near Homer. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, Chuck Lindsay will share photographs and information about climbing and skiing Iliamna Volcano in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve, Truuli Peak (the highest point on the Kenai Peninsula), and crossing the Harding Icefield in Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. Perhaps you’ll be inspired to explore these wild places yourself someday.

Chuck Lindsay is a local adventurer, geologist and commercial fisherman who tries his best to keep up with his wife. 

An archive of the seminar slides and audio can be viewed below.
