Them Days’ Height of Land Challenge Group Walks
Them Days is joining in the Participaction Community Better Challenge. We’ve been inspired by the physical achievements of the Height of Land trappers who canoed from Lake Melville to above Grand Falls (now Churchill Falls) and walked back, hauling their furs, on the frozen Grand River. Our challenge is for all of us to do just even a tiny bit of that journey. Collectively, we will walk the distance from North West River (where many of the trappers lived) to Churchill Falls over the period of May 31-June 16, 2019.
This can be walked independently/individually, but to help us all reach the goal, we’ve scheduled a short walk each day and we’re inviting everyone to come out and walk with us. We’ve designed them so they’re all short (2.4 km or under) and on roads or well-travelled paths, so they’re as accessible as possible. We want everyone to come out and join us! We’ll be talking about the history of the area and sharing memories along the way–we’re Them Days, after all.
