Between River and Rim: Hiking the Grand Canyon

October 3 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

$27.00

Join us for National Geographic Live – Between River and Rim: Hiking the Grand Canyon. In an effort to share the uncharted glory and to shed light on the myriad threats faced by the crown jewel of America’s National Parks, writer Kevin Fedarko joined photographer/filmmaker Pete McBride on an audacious and demanding adventure—to cut a transect, on foot, across the entire length of the Grand Canyon.

Estimated at more than 750 miles, the hike was brutal beyond his wildest expectations. Fedarko carried as much as 50 pounds of gear, equipment, and food strapped to his back and had no trail to follow, risking severe consequences with a single misstep. But even as he pushed himself to the brink of his physical and mental limits, the unrivaled beauty of the canyon and his motivation to protect it drove him onward. Hear his behind-the-scenes stories of this grueling but critical expedition, illustrated with McBride’s stunning visuals.
