On the Waterfront

National Treasures

Our program on hiking in national parks with Kelly Ramstack was a hit. A good sized crowd listened with full attention as Ramstack presented a photo travelogue of her hikes in different national parks that she and her husband have visited through the years. The Ramstacks have been to several national parks in the midwest and west and they always get off the beaten path and do hikes that most of the rest of us only read about...or attend a program about...sometimes traveling vicariously is a great way to have an adventure experience. Ramstack's enjoyable and funny delivery brought laughs and amazement as she talked about camping in bear country, hiking in a river gorge and doing a day long rapelling hike. Her photos of the views she and her husband worked hard to get to were stunhning. You can be sure there will be a "part two" and maybe a "part three" to Ramstack's presentation. If you missed this one you will have other opportunties. The icing on the cake was that Ramstack donated her honorarium fee back to the Library to use for other speakers. Thank you Kelly! And thank you everyone who attended the program. Read more »
