“This show is for everyone who loves mountains,” says Hilloah Rohr, M.S. in Exercise Physiology and tour guide. Pursuing her love for mountains has taken Rohr around the world, but over and over again she returns to the majesty and magnificence of the Alps. Find out why the Alps are so special on Saturday, January 24 at 2:00 p.m. at the Bend Public Library and on Sunday, January 25 at 2:00 p.m. at the Sunriver Area Public Library, when Rohr shares her adventures abroad in a presentation titled, “The Best of the Alps.” Both programs are free and open to the public.
Rohr says “it doesn’t matter if you’re an alpinist or a painter inspired by vistas. The Alps own a special magic.” The Alps tell a compelling tale, from the time and manner in which they were formed, to the wars fought and changing of borders, to the alpinists who have dared climb the Matterhorn, the Eiger, and the Jorasses. Over the years Rohr has become comfortably familiar with the high mountain villages, hikers’ refuges, and unique fleur and fauna of the region. She says she is drawn back year after year because of the “many stories that this special area has to tell.”
This year, Rohr will be presenting a virtual tour through the Berner Oberland including the Tour of the Jungfrau, La Vanoise Park National and the Italian Langa wine region. In addition she will include a special collage of some of her best photos accompanied by music.
