Keen Footwear and the WV Wilderness Coalition presents the Wild and Scenic Film Tour on June 21 at 7pm at the Lewis Theatre in downtown Lewisburg. Nine weeks, 7,500 miles of canyons, petroglyphs, starry nights and breakdowns— in the summer of 2015, we took our 1976 Live Monumental RV on a classic American road trip to protect the places we play. 7,500 miles, 80 pit stops, one national monument designation, and one wilderness designation later, we've created a film to tell the story!
