I don't think you could have done anything better. Your attention to detail and consideration for others are tremendous. Everything was top-notch. Thank you!Shauna M.

OUTSTANDING trip and experience! I didn't know a thing about backpacking before this trip and by the time we got back to our cars on the last day, I no longer felt like a novice! I feel very comfortable going backpacking again without my wonderful guides now and actually am planning on going on a solo trip soon.Ashley O.

This experience really boosted my confidence and knowledge of backpacking! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and meeting folks equally interested in backpacking. The guides are very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about this sport! The training topics were spot on. Saturday dinner was delicious and fun.Amy S.

Just wanted to let you know what a spectacular weekend we had. I could not have been happier signing up for this trip. For a while, I've been wanting to do more backpacking, but just now brave enough or confident enough to venture out on my own. Nancy B.
