Lynn and a super view on Takakkaw Falls rock climb- Copy_1Lynn Mar­tel is a Cana­di­an Rock­ies writer, his­to­ri­an and pub­lic speak­er who explores sto­ries that focus on the moun­tain envi­ron­ment—through out­door adven­ture, his­tor­i­cal biogra­phies, social issues and cur­rent events, through nature and envi­ron­men­tal sci­ence, and through moun­tain-inspired art, writ­ing, film­mak­ing and per­son­al­i­ties.

Author of two books of out­door adven­ture, nine moun­tain biogra­phies and hun­dreds of mag­a­zine and news­pa­per arti­cles in dozens of pub­li­ca­tions, Lynn’s pur­suit of a good sto­ry has led her to inves­ti­gate fas­ci­nat­ing land­scapes from accom­pa­ny­ing sci­en­tists on high alpine glac­i­ers to trekking in the Peru­vian Andes to Auro­ra view­ing in Yel­lowknife.

Mak­ing her home in the Cana­di­an Rock­ies for three decades, Lynn’s pho­tographs have been fea­tured in muse­um exhibits and on web­sites. She also shares her in-depth knowl­edge of west­ern Canada’s moun­tain world through oral his­to­ries and radio seg­ments, and as a pro­fes­sion­al speak­er.
