At the Chalet on Tuesday, October 22 at 6:30pm, we will welcome author, mountaineer & loving dog dad, Rick Crandall, whose recently released memoir, “The Dog Who Took Me Up a Mountain” is inspiring animal lovers and outdoor enthusiasts all over the country.

The early response to this new adventure “tale” is resoundingly appreciative in a multitude of ways.  First, of course, it’s pawsitively relatable to animal lovers no matter how we spend precious time with our 4-legged companions.  And, it rings true for those, especially those of us in beautiful Colorado, who cherish the outdoors and all of our time spent enjoying our extraordinary playground in Colorado’s high backcountry.  But perhaps most poignantly, it encourages us to remember what can be a vital force throughout our lives…whenever we find it and pursue it.

What we’re hearing…

 I am hugely impressed by your ascents of the fourteeners and your approach to the book, never too late to find a new passion in life.

Sir Chris Bonington, legendary mountaineer, author and lecturer

“An amazing journey. Congratulations. Your feat dwarfs others. Your book will be a major success, it will inspire many into outdoor health which is a mantra in Colorado.”

John Hickenlooper, former Colorado governor

This is a wonderful story of a man and the love he had in the small package of  his dog, Emme an Australian terrier! It is such a good book of their time together in the gorgeous mountains. I did cry at the end, these little guys aren’t with us long enough, but their memories remain for life. It is a very good book! 

—Jean Brewer, Goodreads reviewer 

Hope to see you!

Undoubtably, we’re lucky to be one of 13 opportunities to greet and meet the author.  We’ll have refreshments, as well.  Therefore, don’t be one who misses this opportunity to join us to hear and learn how Emme, an Australian Terrier, changed Rick’s life when he needed it most.

We can’t wait!  How about you?
