Ascending: A Conversation with Philanthropist and Author Carrie Morgridge

Ascend at the Aspen Institute would like to invite you to a conversation between Carrie Morgridge, vice president of the Morgridge Family Foundation, and Anne Mosle, vice president, Aspen Institute and executive director, Ascend, to discuss Carrie’s new book, The Spirit of the Trail: A Journey to Fulfillment Along the Continental Divide. 

About The Spirit of the Trail:
Explore and discover what it feels like to bike across the country, on a mountain bike, on what is called the most challenging bike route in North America. In her second book, The Spirit of the Trail, Carrie Morgridge and her husband John take you along this journey. The Spirit of the Trail will inspire you to relive your own adventures. Weather you have always desired to bike across the country, or you have just wondered what is out there in wild North America. Carrie goes deep into details about their triumphs, their struggles for food and water, and how they pushed each other to their maximum physical and mental abilities. She will also introduce you to the kindness of people – and the warmth of small town charm. Explore with them and discover for yourself the majesty of our Country and the Great Divide.
