Ep. 351: How Mountaineering Can Help Heal - Jane Parnell
Jane Parnell has been hiking and climbing the Rocky Mountains since the 1970's when she discovered how the mountains could heal her traumatic wounds. After being raped when she was twenty-one and with few people believing her claim, she met a mountaineer who introduced her to mountaineering. They would eventually be married. Jane's new passion helped her cope with the trauma of the rape and other family issues that weighed heavily on her throughout life. By the time she was thirty, she had become the first woman to climb the 100 highest peaks of Colorado. Jane continued her quest for the summit by turning the goal of sumitting the 100 highest peaks into conquering the 200 highest and ultimately setting her sights on the 300 highest and nearly reached that goal. Jane is on the show today to share with us the ways in which adventure sports, and more specifically mountaineering, can help us find and maintain some sanity in our crazy world. Check out her new book: "Off Trail: Finding My Way Home in the Colorado Rockies"
Jane will be at her book signing at the Tattered Cover in Denver, CO this Saturday Feb. 24, 2018 @ 2 pm. More info here: http://www.tatteredcover.com/new-event-calendar#event-id-138172
