Los Alamos Mountaineers Potpourri – December 20 2017


The Los Alamos Mountaineers will host their annual Potpourri at Fuller Lodge starting at 6:30PM on Wednesday, December 20, 2017.  Potpourri is a heavenly stew, consisting of one part potluck and six parts ten-minute talks, simmered slowly in a delicious sauce of conversation and camaraderie. This is by far the most popular Mountaineers meeting of the year. Make your own early New Year's resolution to attend!


This is a Members Only event, so it is an excellent opportunity to renew or initiate your annual membership if you have not already done so.  You can do this in person at the Lodge with cash or check or ahead of time with PayPal or credit card at

Membership for 2018 is still the bargain of $15 for individuals or $20 for families.

Because this is a potluck, please bring a dish to share. The Club will provide enchiladas from El Parasol and a large chocolate cake. You provide the salads, vegetables, breads, additional desserts and main-course alternatives.

Please bring a place setting to reduce waste - cup, plates, utensils. Raid your backpacking supplies. Clean out the remains from the last camping trip, and bring your kit to Fuller Lodge. There will be soapy water for clean-up.

Bring your appetite, stories to share with your table mates and your enthusiasm for the six 10-minute talks, following directly after the potluck.  These will include ice climbing, slick-rock exploring, big wall climbs, and other adventures.

Talks include: 


Eric Peterson:  Out and About on the Trails of Los Alamos

Bill Priedhorsky:  Moab - the Discoveries Continue

Nicole and Brandon Gabel:  Ice Climbing in the Canadian Rockies

Rod McCrady: Biking the Continental Divide Trail Neat Hopewell Lake

Michael Altherr: A Year of Adventures by a Mere Mortal
