In the Gabriola Museum’s first presentation of the season, intrepid hikers Moira Rockwell and Dennis Keis, veterans of the Pacific Crest Trail, 2650 miles from Mexico to Canada, will share their adventures on the Camino.  

They walked 851 kilometres in 37 days, carrying heavy packs, staying in pilgrim hostels, and braving a variety of weather conditions.  Other trails hiked by Moira and Dennis include the West Coast Trail, Cape Scott, the Stein Valley Trail, and the Nootka Island Trail in BC, as well as the Chilkoot Trail and the Camol Heritage Trail, one of the most challenging trails in Canada due to it remoteness, length and river crossings.  

Come to The Roxy on Thursday, October 17 and share Moira and Dennis’s journey, “The Camino de Santiago:  A Walk to the End of the Earth.”  Doors open at 6:30. Presentation at 7:00. Admission by donation.
