Jen, Jessica, Andrea, Angie and Kim share their adventures backpacking at Isle Royale. We discuss planning, transportation, campsites, privies (bring TP!), moose encounters and the legend of the over protective, dive bombing Goshawk. We talk about the highlights and the no so fun moments. But in the end, it sounds like they wouldn't trade any of them.
Learn more about each of these women and their exceptional bond through hiking by listening to their adventures at Isle Royale.
