“Hike All of Glacier in an Hour (or so)” with Jake Bramante of Hike 734

The Montana House is pleased to host another Look Listen and Learn event with a presentation by Jake Bramante. He’s best known for being the first person to hike all 734 miles of trail in Glacier National Park in a single summer. His talk will begin at 7pm at the Montana House in Apgar Village.

In 2011, on May 17th, Jake began his walking journey through Glacier and concluded it on October 15th. His presentation explores how he went form IT professional to budding entrepreneur and the inception and completion of the project. Come meet Jake and listen to him relive his journey through photos, HD videos and vivid storytelling as he faced unseasonably high snowpack, injury, panoramic vistas, waterfalls, grizzly bears, birds, flowers, bull moose fighting and more. He concludes his presentation with lessons he learned with applications both practical and inspiring for anyone who needs encouragement to start a challenging endeavor or find the strength to finish. Jake will also speak about his newly published Day Hikes of Glacier National Park Map Guide.

Jake grew up in northwest Montana. After graduating high school from Bigfork and attending college in Arizona he returned to Montana with a degree in Computer Information Systems and a renewed desire to explore the amazing country he grew up in. He began exploring the Bob Marshall Wilderness complex and Glacier National Park. In 2010, he walked away from his corporate job as an IT professional to pursue film and video production. Soon a project developed which became ‘Hike 734’ – hike all 734 miles of trail in Glacier National Park in one year and film his journey. Jake is an engaging speaker and thoroughly enjoys sharing his hiking experiences.

The presentation at the Montana House will begin at 7 pm with time for questions and a reception to follow. The event is open to the public without charge, but seating is limited, so reservations are needed. Please call (406) 888-5393 or email: 1960mthouse@qwestoffice.net for additional information and to reserve your seat.
