Four valleys and nine hikes in the Dolomites

The Dolomites area of northern Italy is a beautiful and historic region presenting hikers, climbers, and bicyclists (and skiers) many exciting opportunities. Learn about some of the best hikes in this fascinating UNESCO World Heritage site, including Rosengarten, Civetta, Sassolungo, Pralongià, Gardenaccia, Schlern, Odle/Geissler, and more. After a day in Bozen/Bolzano, where we meet Ötzi, “the iceman,” it’s into the mountains every day for sunshine (most of the time), wildflowers, refugios, and views, and back down into four valleys (where the ancient language of Ladin predominates) for food and refreshing evenings.

Crossroads of the Silk Road -Uzbekistan

April 25th, 2018 l 7:00pm l Free

Four cities sat at junctures of the old Silk Road connecting Europe and Asia and they prospered because of it. Each was a regional capital and one was capital of an empire. In addition to being prosperous and powerful, they were also centers of learning and culture. These four cities (Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara, and Khiva) with their stunning architecture and World Heritage Sites are the subject of Richard Lion’s talk based on his visit last Spring. Although all four are in Uzbekistan today it has only been around for 1/2 percent of their existence and largely irrelevant to their history.

What are Blue Zones? – A Blue Zone is an anthropological term for a zone in the world where people typically live longer. The following travel show will talk about one couple’s bike trip in a Blue Zone.

“We bicycle where people live the longest in the world to learn how each of us can make simple changes to our environment that will encourage healthier behavior and habits. For an average American these changes can lead to an extra 12 years of quality life!”  - Bruce J.
