Rob Southcott, Bob Perry and Murray Jones presented “In the footsteps of the greats”, a tale of their impressive hiking adventure along the North Powell Divide. They, together with Murray’s son Kevin, spent eight days route-finding and hiking the 50 kilometres from just south of the top of Toba Inlet, all the way south to the D-Branch road in the Eldred River Valley.
The presentation was accompanied by evocative photographs that fully documented their hike. What a hike it was! It involved crossing snow slopes, climbing peaks and camping with wildlife. The presentation appealed to anyone who has, or desires to, venture beyond the safety of their own backyard.
Their incredible journey was the subject of a story in the Powell River Peak that can be found here.
