Stories and Practical Tips for Hiking the Grand Canyon
At The Hike House Energy Cafe there will be free hiking clinic about hiking the Grand Canyon on Monday, May 14, 2012 at 1:00pm.
The clinic will be led by CJ Malcolm, who is currently the Coordinator of Grand Canyon National Park’s Preventative Search and Rescue Team, known as PSAR. This Team is comprised of 8 Seasonal Rangers and 50 Volunteers. They educate tens of thousands of people a year in safe hiking and respond to hundreds of distress calls throughout the Canyon.
CJ has extensive wilderness experience in nearly every eco-system. He has worked as an Ocean Lifeguard, ski patroller, SAR member, Paramedic, Firefighter and Ranger over the course of 14 years.
On any given day, CJ could be responding in the Park’s Helicopter to a CPR in progress down on the Colorado River or hiking Sedona’s trails with his wife Heather and 5 mo old boy Colter.
Sounds like fun! Everyone should stop by and check it out!
