Guides were very capable! ..Helpful!! Put our group at ease: regarding their skills/knowledge. They challenged the group. Challenged me personally! It’s been several years since I’ve been, but I remember several aspects: physical challenges, spiritually challenged. I was completely exhausted at the end of the experience: both physically and mentally. But I was more dependent upon God, because I was so tired. The backpacking experience was something brand new to me. I loved sleeping under the stars. I recall the full moon the few nights we were there, absolutely amazing! Do you catch a major theme here: Challenging!! Memorable!
