Program on hiking legend here Monday
On Monday, at the Shrine of the Ages, 7:30 p.m., hear "Grand Obses-sion: Harvey Butchart and Exploration of the Grand Canyon's Backcountry." Elias Butler and Tom Myers will discuss the life and ambition of John Harvey Butchart, a math professor who found his life's great purpose in deciphering Canyon mysteries and uncovering ancient trails and recording his findings for those who would follow in his footsteps. Butler and Myers are authors of the new book on Butchart's life, "One who Dared."
Butler is an Arizona native and writer and photographer who spends as much time as he can trekking in the southwest's backcountry. Myers worked as a physician at the Canyon for more than a decade and has hiked the Canyon extensively. He is also co-author of "Over the Edge: Death in Grand Canyon."
