Poets on the Peaks

May 30, 2015

Poets on the PeaksIf your muse needs a little getaway, consider Poets on the Peaks: A Ross Lake Literary Adventure offered by the North Cascades Institute August 13-16, 2015.

“Traveling by boat with two great storyteller-naturalists [Gerry Cook and Saul Weisberg] with decades of backcountry experience between them, we’ll read poetry and lookout journals, go swimming and hiking, practice yoga and meditation and tour the lake’s hidden canyons. The highlight of our adventure will be hiking to the top of Desolation Peak where Kerouac, the reluctant “King of the Beats,” spent the summer of 1956—an experience he famously documented in his novels The Dharma Bums and Desolation Angels.”

    ‘Poets on the Peaks’ is one of my favorite books. I was a fire lookout for 7 years. I’m still a poet!
