Nahanni River (Rabbitkettle Lake to Blackstone Territorial Park), Northwest Territories
1-15 July 2017
Meagan was Expedition Leader for a whitewater canoe expedition down the Nahanni River. She did not provide the paddle expertise, but she was team leader and coordinated all the other details: logistics, permissions, team training, etc for the team. Everyone on the team was provided a role, so as to feel a genuine contribution to the success of the expedition. An enormously amazing experience; she greatly appreciated the leadership opportunity and working with a wonderful team.
Ojos del Salado, Atacama Desert, Chile
Meagan attempted Ojos del Salado, again, in Jan/Feb 2017. Unbelievably, no summit. The cold, consistent wind driving into her right eye forced a turn-around in the name of safety. She will have to return in the future. The Atacama Desert is a beautiful place, and having a reason to return is not so bad.
Speaker aboard Crystal Serenity, Northwest Passage Sailing
Meagan has been invited to speak aboard the Crystal Serenity as it sails through the Northwest Passage, from Alaska to Greenland. A remarkably unique opportunity, Meagan will speak about her past adventures, some of the lessons she's learned along the way, and touch on some of the off-beat experiences that has engendered her love of adventure!
