Brought together by their desire to grow stronger, soak up more tree aura, test themselves in the backcountry, and learn to backpack, the women of the 2022 Summit Sisters Class are kicking butt!!
This is a story of women empowering women, of women busting stereotypes, of women learning just how strong they are, and of women rejecting limitations put on them by others.
These 9 strong, beautiful women began hiking short distances slowly, with no packs, just 3 short months ago. Now they are all carrying packs weighing 20# plus and are pounding out 3, 4, 5 miles of challenging trails at a time. They have completed six ½-day content training sessions covering everything from gear basics and how to hang a bear bag, to safety on the trail and how to poop in the woods. So many belly laughs along the way, plus hugs, encouragement, a tear or two, and Sister love. What a wonderful group of women.
Next up: The Sole Sisters first backpacking trip happening mid-July! Stay tuned….!
