Abstract:

This Globe Trekker special explores the best treks America has to offer. First, host Zay Harding climbs to the summit of Mt. Rainier in Washington state. Although the climb is strenuous it's one that can be done by new converts to mountaineering provided you have some training and a knowledgeable guide. Next, Holly Morris goes canyoneering deep into the heart of native Apache territory in Arizona. We meet up with Zay Harding in Copper Canyon, home to the mysterious Tarahumara Indian tribe, where Zay finds that hiking isn't for the faint of heart. Again we join Holly Morris as she learns what it takes to be a cowgirl and embarks on a cattle drive from Bitterroot Ranch in Wyoming. Next we join novice climber Christina LaMonica as she prepares to attempt to reach the summit of Grand Teton in Wyoming. Finally, Holly Morris has her own physical endurance levels to deal with as she makes her way by packhorse through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in southern Colorado.
