Beginner Backpack Weekend Adventure!

Last weekend we had the amazing opportunity to take out a great group of people to Morgan Monroe State Forest for our first adventure of the year. This was our beginner backpack trip where we shared our knowledge and helpful tips to get them out in the backcountry on their own. We went over topo maps, trail blazes, picked an amazing site along the Tecumseh Trail where we set up camp, filtered water from the neighboring stream, made fire, cooked, hung our food and even dug cat holes. We were fortunate enough to see tons of beautiful wild flowers such as shooting stars, jack in the pulpit, trout lilly and dutchman’s breeches. We had a clear night to sit by the fire under the pines and gaze at the stars and Jupiter shining bright. We were also visited by the local Great Horned owls and coyotes. They put on a wonderful performance of howling and hooting.

If you are ready to take your next adventure with your group, family, by yourself or with your company please let us know what excursion you would be interested in.

See what a member of our group spoke about our adventure below.

“Our family of 4 are seasoned campers but novice backpackers. We all agreed that our time with Danielle and Kate was educational but more importantly, FUN! No pressure, our pace and our guides were like hanging out with old friends. We’ll definitely recommend Danielle and Kate to anyone interested in outdoor adventure or to a family or couple who just want some together time outdoors. We had a great backpacking weekend!!” Heidi – Indianapolis, IN
