Take Only Pictures, Leave Only Footprints
And do we have the pictures! This past year Melissa Engimann, our Foundation Assistant, has been on a massive archiving project spanning decade’s worth of Hante and camp slides and prints. She has painstakingly been going through each image and logging and filing it into long term storage. For Hante alone there are over 35 years of material, representing dozens and dozens of Hantes. From each box, memories from around the globe have emerged dropping us all back in time.
Are you a past Hante Adventurer? If so, dig out your photos and share them with us! We have a new Hante Instagram account (hanteadventures) which is a great place to gather those up and share amongst those of hundreds of other trekkers, paddlers and climbers. I guarantee you will get a good trip down memory lane! And, it will be fun project for the long nights we are having here at the Winter Solstice.
Never been on a Hante but are curious about it? You can check out all the old school backpacks, see incredible places and lots of happy people – what could be better?
Hope to see your pictures soon!
