This Vancouver woman is the youngest Canadian to conquer the Seven Summits (and wrote a book about it, too)

At just 26 years old, Vancouver native Elizabeth Rose became the youngest Canadian to scale the Seven Summits. And because she's no millennial slouch, she's just published her first book, a memoir about her journeys.

This week on the Vancouver Is Awesome Podcast we're joined by Elizabeth "Liz" Rose, who at 26 years old became the youngest Canadian to reach the peak of the Seven Summits - the highest mountains on each of the seven continents. And, because she's not a total millennial slacker, she wrote a memoir about her journeys, too.

Guest co-host Adam joins Lindsay to talk to Liz about her epic adventures around the globe and her recently-released book, Written in the Snow: My Journey to the Seven Summits. 

Plus, Adam and Lindsay are joined by V.I.A. reporter Elana for a talk about the current measles outbreak in Metro Vancouver, as well as some fun tidbits about sea turtles, Robson Street, and the return of vinyl pressing in Vancouver.
