I learned so much on this trip, like how to fit my backpack, how to set up my tent, how to start a fire, how to cross a river and how to be a responsible backpacker. I was surprised that we got the chance to try so many varieties of backpacking food. – Junlan L.

I really, really enjoyed this program. I thought the workshops were interesting and informational. I really liked that you showed us different things like with the stoves and how to bear proof our food. I appreciated that we went slow and had breaks to ease us into backpacking. It was informative and fun. Thank you! – Maggie U.

The loved the amazing attention to detail and the supportive environment that the guides provided. Surprising to myself, I really enjoyed the yoga. And of course the hiking. The fantastic leaders set the tone for a group. They encouraged a supportive female environment from the start and ensured everyone felt comfortable and included. – Ellie H.
This trip went far beyond my expectations. The details that were put into the trip, preparation, workshops, activities, handouts, follow-up, pictures, were all 'extras' that were not expected. – Jessica H.
I loved the rappelling and the yoga in the cave, and of course, I always love hiking. The food was excellent, Linda and Kristy did a great job preparing it. The cabins were great, loved having the wood burning fireplace, and there was plenty of space for 4 people. The employees at the resort, from the restaurant to the guides, were all so nice. – Name Withheld

Even though it was cold and windy, it was a good trip and I'm glad I went. The workshops were interesting and educational. – Robin Y.
The hands-on workshops with water filters and fire building were especially helpful to me. There was much value in having a guide with Yvonne's vast experience to talk to women about backpacking safety and other issues from a female perspective. – Laurie J.
