“Journey North” by John Dunn
Noted photographer and expedition leader, John Dunn is back for
his fifth Society lecture series. This time he shares the story
of his "no frills" traverse from Tofino to Fort Nelson,
as previously featured in ‘Dunn's
Crossing,’ Canadian Geographic,
John begins this daunting expedition with a solo kayaking journey up the outside
of Vancouver Island. Stage two is a trip up the Inside Passage in a West Coast
style canoe with seven colleagues. The most rugged section is the late-season
crossing of the entire Canadian Cordillera, from Stewart to Fort Nelson. John
rates this 1,000-km hike and canoe trip through the untracked wilderness of
northern B.C. as the toughest expedition he has ever undertaken.
John’s talk is backed by a spectacular multimedia presentation using
70mm slide projectors, video and music. Now you can enjoy the vistas and excitement
of this rugged expedition without the discomfort and danger.
This lecture tour is sponsored by The Royal Canadian Geographical
Society and Queen’s University Alumni Association.
