BAR HARBOR, ME—The 104-mile walk around the Mont Blanc Massif is one of the most popular walking trails in Europe. In September, 2012, College of the Atlantic’s Lynn Boulger, Dean of Institutional Advancement and husband Tim Garrity, Executive Director of the Mount Desert Historical Society, hiked the entire walk.

The journey through the Italian, French and Swiss alps took them 10 days to hike—but the couple prepared for it for months beforehand. On Tuesday, April 2nd at 4:10 p.m., Boulger and Garrity will share their gear list, guide books, and some of their 804 slides with the community for the first Human Ecology Forum of the college’s spring term. The talk will be in McCormick Lecture Hall.
