Armchair Traveler to feature Backpacking in Yellowstone

Scarborough Public Library will host Armchair Traveler at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 25. The event will take guests on a virtual backpacking trip to Yellowstone National Park.

Join Jonathan Rundell, avid hiker and photographer, and five Maine and New Hampshire backpackers for a virtual trip as they spend eight nights on the trail in Wyoming and Montana.

Rundell’s travelogue will start with five nights in the northwest corner of Yellowstone National Park— including an ascent of 11,000 foot Electric Peak.

After one night off the trail, we’ll continue on the spectacular and rugged Beartooth Plateau Loop just outside the park, where we’ll pass numerous pristine alpine lakes and tackle the navigational challenges of off-trail travel in this high-altitude wilderness.

The journey will also take a quick drive through Yellowstone National Park, stopping to enjoy its abundant wildlife, waterfalls and geothermal features.

The event is free to attend and open to the public.
