PEEC News:

The community is invited to attend the Los Alamos Mountaineers meeting and hear about Eiichi Fukushima’s trip to East Greenland in 1971.

This presentation is free and open to the public and starts at 7:15 p.m. at the Los Alamos Nature Center on Canyon Road. The Mountaineers’ regular meeting begins at 7 p.m. and covers information about upcoming outings.

Fukushima traveled to East Greenland with Don Liska and Larry Campbell, two other Los Alamos Mountaineers, to attempt a possible ascent of Ejnar Mikkelsen Fjeld, the highest summit north of the Arctic Circle. They also traveled to the highest, Gunnbjørn Fjeld. The group’s travel plans changed throughout their journey but led them to explore glaciers, raft and hike on this incredible adventure.

The Los Alamos Mountaineers meet at 7 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Los Alamos Nature Center.
