From the Indoor Office to the Outdoor Office

On August, 27 we spent the morning talking with REI employees at the Portland, OR store about the PEAK program. REI employees provide outreach to their communities through the PEAK program.

After a short presentation there we headed to the 'office' of International Mountain Guides (IMG) in Ashford, WA. We spent the day learning about glacier travel from IMG co-founder George Dunn. George, a Leave No Trace Master Educator, spent time talking with us about the ways that IMG 'leaves no trace' while guiding their clients up mountains all over the world. We also had the opportunity to share Leave No Trace information with some of the climbers that were about to climb Mt. Rainier.

The guides at IMG are a class act. We really appreciate George having the Traveling Trainers out for a day of glacier training and we look forward to climbing with International Mountain Guides in the future.

Until next time,

JD and Emily
