Yes, the Weber Outdoor Program was the birthplace of the Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show which began as a radio program on Weber's radio station, KWCR. So, it's nice to get a guest on from the ol' stomping grounds from time to time.
Mike Henderson is the assistant coordinator at the OP, and he joined to chat about their annual gear sale & swap, ongoing FREE climbing adventures, upcoming winter trips, and more.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“Something will have gone out of us as a people if we ever let the remaining wilderness be destroyed ... We simply need that wild country available to us, even if we never do more than drive to its edge and look in.” ― Wallace Stegner, The Sound of Mountain Water
