Kicking Horse Culture and Wildsight are teaming up to bring Mountains: the Sacred and the Profane to Golden.

It is an audiovisual presentation by Pat and Baiba Morrow, award-winning photojournalists from Wilmer, B.C.

Their presentation will reflect upon three decades of high adventure—from searching for hidden valleys in the Himalayas, to Jumbo Pass in the Purcell Mountains of B.C., and their local community efforts to keep the mountains wild and free.

When Kootenay born and raised Pat and his wife Baiba summitted Carstensz Pyramid, the loftiest peak in Australasia, Pat became the first person to summit the highest mountain on each of the seven continents.

His book, Beyond Everest: Quest for the Seven Summits, documents his hallmark adventure.

In recognition of these achievements he has received the Order of Canada in 1988, and the Summit of Excellence Award in 1990.

Mountains: the Sacred and the Profane will be presented at the Golden Civic Centre on Friday Nov. 30 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the Art Gallery of Golden, and are $15 for adults, and $5 for students.
