KDLL's Adventure Talks program took over the Kenai Conversation this week. Local chiropractor/paddling instructor/adventurer Matt Pyhala stopped by to discuss the how/where/when/why of biking the Hebridean Way, which he and his wife, Sarah, did in June. The 200-plus-mile cycling route took them through the Outer Hebrides Islands off the northwest coast of Scotland.
 
 Join Matt and Sarah for photos, stories and video of the trip at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 17 at the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center. Admission is free for KDLL members and $5 for nonmembers.

KDLL's Jenny Neyman speaks with Lisa Maloney, author of "Day Hiking Southcentral Alaska," about becoming a guide book author and writing her new book. This show aired at 10 a.m. May 22. On May 23, Maloney gave an Adventure Talks presentation at the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center, showing pictures and talking about trails in the region, as well as hiking safety, gear and more.

KDLL Adventure Talks offers a virtual hike of the Kenai Peninsula’s newest long-distance backpacking route, the Tutka Backdoor Trail, with trail coordinator Bretwood “Hig” Higman, of Ground Truth Trekking in Seldovia, and Eric Clarke, with Kachemak Bay State Park. In the on-air interview, host Jenny Neyman talks with Hig and Eric about how and why the trail came to be. They also discuss sustainable trail building and the little things hikers can do to make a big difference in maintaining their favorite trails.
