Silver Winter: 25 Year Anniversary Retracing of Our First Month Long Snowshoe Trip in the Maine Woods
Talk by Garrett Conover


This is a chronicle of two month-long snowshoe trips from Greenville to Allagash Village, twenty–five years apart. The second, 2005 trip provided a fresh look at the Maine woods surrounding Moosehead Lake, the West and North Branches of the Penobscot, and the St. John River; a month long snowshoe and toboggan celebration of several conservation success stories; human powered traditional travel; and the beauty of the wilds in winter.

Garrett & Alexandra Conover radiate an inspirational connectedness to the landscapes and northern people whose skills they have been studying and practicing for more than thirty years. Yankee Magazine listed them amongst “Sixty People Who Make New England New England” and in 1999 Outside Magazine profiled them (with five others) as “20th Century Heroes for a New Millennium”.
