Journalist Mark Jenkins returns to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West on March 20 with his latest "World to Wyoming" presentation about his 2015 journey into the Namib Desert.
The free talk takes place in the Center's Coe Auditorium on Wednesday, March 20, at 7 p.m. in Cody, Wyoming.
The presentation grew from Jenkins’s 2015 trip — while on assignment for National Geographic — to Namibia, where he climbed Brandberg, the country’s highest mountain, which conceals one of the greatest collections of rock paintings.
Jenkins says he undertook the journey in 120-degree heat “to explore this alfresco art museum and reflect on the challenges of water scarcity then and now.” His talk shares insights into the 4,000-year-old paintings and the now-extinct tribe that created them.
The “World to Wyoming” tour takes Jenkins to several communities throughout the state, including Sheridan, Gillette, Powell, Cody, Jackson, and Laramie. He presents this talk at Northwest College’s Yellowstone Conference Center on March 19 at 7 p.m.
