I love backpacking for the personal challenge it provides, as well as the meditative state of walking all day. My next trip will be up in North Cascades National Park with a group of young women I mentor. It will be our third backpacking trip together, and they've become very vocal about wanting a "flat" trail this go around. It is wonderful to hear them talk about previous trips, taking pride in cooking their own meals, carrying their own gear, and so on.
And so I am reminded of this quote from
"Few things can help an individual more
than to place responsibility on him,
and to let him know that you trust him."
