This trip was an outstanding experience. The group could not have had better leaders in Doug and Elaine. They made everything interesting, challenging when needed, educational and fun....lots of laughter. Anyone who takes this trip will fall in love with the North Woods, have greater appreciation of the natural world around us and understand our deep connectedness to it; most importantly, a call to all of us to protect it. The group was such a wonderful group of people and it is amazing how quickly a person can feel deeply bonded in such a short period of time. I would highly recommend this trip (or any other to that region) to anyone.
