One of our favorite pastimes is inviting our best-loved storytellers to share their adventures with us. Whether they are icons of the literary world or experts in their own field, we relish hearing their experiences and appreciate the way they propel us towards our own travel imaginings.

Embracing the No Barriers Mindset: An Evening with Erik Weihenmayer
Join us in Seattle for an evening with blind-adventurer Erik Wiehenmayer who, in addition to summitting Mount Everest, also conquered the tallest peak on each continent. Erik will share the mindset that enabled his adventures and has inspired his work with underserved youth, veterans, and people with significant challenges of all kinds, from Seattle and throughout the world.
This event will benefit No Barriers, an organization that seeks to "unleash the potential of the human spirit" through "authentic, immersion experiences that push individuals outside of their comfort zones and challenge them intellectually, emotionally, or physically." Ticket sales and donations will help support their programs for veterans, youth, and people of all ability levels.
Purchase tickets below or by calling 970-484-3633. Limited seats available.
