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.
