Description

In this one-of-a-kind event, local travel writer and international mountain guide Charlotte Austin will share stories and photos from her experiences from a decade of living on the road. Have you ever wondered what it's like to guide climbers to the summit of Mount Rainier? Would you like to know the five things that are always in a travel writer's backpack? Do you want to work outdoors, or maybe pursue a career as a guide? Come share adventures, ask questions, and see breathtaking photos from around the world.

Charlotte Austin is a Seattle-based adventure/travel writer and mountain guide. Her work has been published in Alpinist, Misadventures Magazine, Stay Wild, Seattle Magazine, Women's Adventure Magazine, Mountain Magazine, Seattle Met, and more. When she's not writing, Charlotte works for International Mountain Guides, where she leads climbing, mountaineering, and hiking expeditions around the world. In 2017 alone, she led a team on a summit attempt on Denali (20,310'), summited Mount Elbrus (the tallest mountain in Europe), guided an expedition to climb the tallest mountain in Mongolia, and trekked over Salktanay Pass in Peru. She is also a Wilderness EMT, Leave No Trace trainer, and holds a Level 2 certification with the American Institute for Avalanche Training and Education.
