Since 1849, over 150 people have lost their lives on Mt. Washington and the surrounding Presidential Range. In this presentation, featured speaker Joan Veilleux will tell us with emotion and suspense, the true stories of debutant Lizzie Bourne and climber Ned Green. She will share with us her personal encounters of what may have been their “presence” while climbing the mountain and working as a ranger on the summit. Joan brings us back in time to the 1850s and then into the present world of ice climbing and mountaineering, all in a place she knows and loves.
