Earlier this year, Martin Staley traveled to New Zealand for an adrenaline-pumping adventure across both islands. He will give a presentation about his incredible journey Tuesday during this month’s meeting of the Los Alamos Mountaineers.
His talk is at the Los Alamos Nature Center after the regular Mountaineer’s meeting at 7 p.m., which will cover information about upcoming outings. Staley’s talk starts by 7:15 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
Staley was in New Zealand December 2017 to January 2018. While there, he went hiking, backpacking, sea kayaking, paragliding, skydiving, sailing and canyoneering. Throughout his travels, he explored the beaches, volcanoes, rainforests, hot springs, mountains, fjords and glaciers of New Zealand.
At his Mountaineers talk, Staley will describe his adventures and share stories and photos from his trip.
The Los Alamos Mountaineers meet at 7 p.m., the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Los Alamos Nature Center at 2600 Canyon Road.
