Video-The Farmington NH Historical Society- Jean Davenhall-The New Hampshire 48 Four Thousand Footers

The June 3rd Farmington Historical Society meeting promotions read:

The feature will be Jean Davenhall, as guest speaker. Jean is a lifelong Farmington resident whose passion for hiking and the outdoors led her to recently complete climbing The NH 48 Four Thousand Footers, a list of New Hampshire's mountains reaching 4,000 feet or more in elevation.

Jean's interest in the outdoors includes not only hiking but skiing (alpine, Nordic and water), snowshoeing, kayaking, running and bicycling. Jean's adventures in the outdoors have included skiing Tuckerman s Ravine for many years with her ski buddies, snowmobiling 1,700 miles around the Gaspe Peninsula in Eastern Quebec, Canada, skiing out west as well as kayaking many NH rivers and lakes. Her first trip to the summit of Mt. Washington was in 1996 when she had the opportunity to run in the Mt. Washington Road Race. She reached the summit in 2:08! Jean also ran the Nute Ridge Half Marathon several times!

Jean will share her experience with an interactive talk and slideshow of her recent 20 mile day-hike through the Pemigewasset Wilderness from Twin Mountain to Lincoln with her husband Tom and their Standard Poodle, Ava, on their journey to achieve their goal of climbing all 48 NH Four Thousand Footers. Their sojourn in the wilderness began an hour before daybreak on September 18, 2010, and Jean will share the beautiful photos she took throughout the day until they reached their destination some twelve hours and twenty miles later!
