Adventurer Mark Jenkins of Laramie gets assignments all over the world for National Geographic, the magazine he writes for. He’s climbed Mount Everest, bicycled across Siberia, and even skied in Central Asia with the world’s oldest ski culture. Now, he’s one-upped himself.
To find out more about his expedition to the caves of Vietnam, I met with Jenkins in his gear room, a very orderly nook in the basement of his house, stacked with well-labeled bins full of outdoor equipment. It’s here that all of his adventures begin.
You can see a slide show of his trip into the largest cave in the world during the month of March when Jenkins will do a nine city tour around Wyoming. He’ll start with a talk at the Education Auditorium at the University of Wyoming on March 3rd at 7 p.m.
