Holy Hikes of WNC is pleased to announce "Retreat in Wilderness and Discipleship: Encounter God in Wild Places through the Story of Hudson Stuck," a hiking retreat coming to Valle Crucis Conference this fall, Sunday, October 22 through Wednesday, October 25.
The speaker for this retreat is Patrick Dean, author of A Window to Heaven: The Daring First Ascent of Denali, America's Wildest Peak, which recounts the story of The Rev. Hudson Stuck, an Episcopal priest who was the first person to summit North America's highest peak.
Optional group hikes for various ability levels will be offered by Holy Hikes of WNC on Monday and Tuesday between learning about Hudson Stuck, who spent much of his ministry visiting remote Alaskan villages by dogsled and advocating for Native rights in the early 1900s.
Come to the high country this fall to hike, grow in faith, learn about one of the church's unknown saints, and encounter the God who made it all!
