Taking the Hike 734 Presentation on the Road

This past October, 34-year-old Montana resident Jake Bramante became the first person to hike every mile of every trail within Glacier National Park - a total of 734 miles - in only one year!

Armchair adventurers now have opportunity to hear first hand what it's like to accomplish such an ambitious feat. Next month Jake will be recounting his adventure through pictures and video at the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish, and the University of Montana in Missoula.

Armed with a Canon 7D and bear spray, Bramante captured sweeping panoramas, birds, alpine lakes, elk, grizzlies and moose fighting. Discover how he planned the adventure and executed his goal over 5 months with 89 total hiking days, 1,200 miles of actual hiking, and three pairs of shoes.

On March 1st he will be at the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish at 7 p.m. This will also be a fundraiser for the Glacier National Park Fund. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at door (if not sold out).

On Wednesday, February 15th, at 7:30 p.m. he will at the University of Montana in Missoula (in CHCB 131). This event is free.
