The summer of 2008 got Backpacking Light's Wilderness Trekking School off to a great start. We ran three trips in three wildly different locations: Northern Rockies, Pacific Northwest, and Desert Southwest. Each allowed for a unique experience and permitted us to focus on the core curriculum of the Wilderness Trekking format.

All three of our courses began with a full day in a classroom as a foundation for the backcountry time. This was an opportunity for in-depth presentations and group discussions, as well as hands-on time with the gear, all building to the moment we left the indoor classroom for the outdoor one.
