About the Event

Join photographer/filmmaker Pete McBride on an epic quest, on foot, through the entire length of the Grand Canyon—not “rim to rim” as has been tackled by many—but 750 miles “end to end.” More people have walked on the moon than have completed this treacherous journey! Hiking over 100 days, Pete, along with adventure writer Kevin Fedarko, traversed mostly along the goat trail, through slot canyons, blinding sun, and snow. Part sufferfest, part glorious trek, their expedition sheds light on the health and future of this national treasure and invites us to contemplate the value of wild spaces.

About the Speaker

A photographer, filmmaker, writer, conservationist, and narrator, Pete McBride has traveled on assignment to over 75 countries for National Geographic, Smithsonian, The Nature Conservancy, and others. A Sony Artisan of Imagery and a National Geographic “Adventurer of the Year,” he has also spoken on some of the world’s most prestigious stages, including the World Economic Forum. His years of documenting remote expeditions from Everest to Antarctica to the Colorado River have resulted in acclaimed books, documentaries, and TV programs, and raised conservation awareness. Following his expedition through the Grand Canyon, Pete released Grand Canyon: Between River and Rim, which won a National Outdoor Book Award. He accompanied the book with a feature-length documentary, Into the Canyon, for the National Geographic Channel, which won Best Feature at the Banff Mountain Film Festival, among others.
