“Journey North” by John Dunn

Noted photographer and expedition leader, John Dunn is back for his fifth Society lecture series. This time he shares the story of his "no frills" traverse from Tofino to Fort Nelson, as previously featured in ‘Dunn's Crossing,’ Canadian Geographic, July/August 1998).

John begins this daunting expedition with a solo kayaking journey up the outside of Vancouver Island. Stage two is a trip up the Inside Passage in a West Coast style canoe with seven colleagues. The most rugged section is the late-season crossing of the entire Canadian Cordillera, from Stewart to Fort Nelson. John rates this 1,000-km hike and canoe trip through the untracked wilderness of northern B.C. as the toughest expedition he has ever undertaken.

John’s talk is backed by a spectacular multimedia presentation using 70mm slide projectors, video and music. Now you can enjoy the vistas and excitement of this rugged expedition without the discomfort and danger.

This lecture tour is sponsored by The Royal Canadian Geographical Society and Queen’s University Alumni Association.
