Two years ago, award-winning nature writer and photographer Tim Palmer spent the spring, summer, and autumn exploring California ’s last glaciers, to document their raw and majestic beauty before they disappear. Join Tim for slides and highlights of these hiking and climbing expeditions, which took him into the deep blue crevasses of Mount Shasta, to the granite spires arising from Matterhorn Glacier in the Hoover Wilderness, into dripping ice caves at the base of Yosemite’s Merced Glacier, and to the edge of the forbidding crevasse at the head of North Palisade–the largest glacier remaining in the Sierra Nevada. Following the program, Tim will sign copies of his new book, California Glaciers–a beautiful and eloquent tribute to these extraordinary natural wonders, which have carved our mountains and valleys and filled our lakes, rivers, and streams for millennia.
