Picture Night is an opportunity to enjoy pictures and stories of outdoor adventures and travel most often presented by fellow Chemeketans. During the presentations, we often learn a bit of history about the area visited and about the people encountered. Picture Night is usually held the second Friday of each month, September through May (except December). Read on for information about this month’s presentation.

Covid was bad in many ways but not when it comes to airline deals. Scott English was able to check off his #2 bucket list item when prices dropped 75%. He spent just under 3 weeks in Nepal. He visited monkey temple, attended a Hindu cremation ceremony then started his trek journey by flying in/out of the world's most dangerous airport. He then joined 25 others and hiked 92 miles, a total of 25,000 feet of elevation gain. He battled bitter cold with gusting winds, but it was worth it all to reach Mt. Everest Base Camp. The tour package was only $839. Scott has wonderful photos and even better stories to share.
