Greenland Joins IAT
On April 22-23 at the Annual IAT Council Meeting in Halifax-Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Greenland joined the International Appalachian Trail as the 7th official chapter. In attendance from Greenland were IAT Greenland Director René Kristensen and his Greenlander hiking friend Hans Gundel.
The two-day event started with cocktails (i.e. beers) and fine dining (i.e. pub grub) at the Celtic Corner steak house (i.e. local pub) in Dartmouth, followed by an awe-inspiring slideshow from René and Hans showing highlights of their 2009 two-week trek of the Nuussuaq Peninsula in Western Greenland, location of the new IAT Greenland.
