What cool backpacking trips have you done recently?

In the last few years we have completed several overnight & multiday backpack trips in places like the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru; Na Pali Coast in Kauai, Waimanu Valley Hawaii; National Park of Corsica in France; Grand Canyon (R-R-R) in Arizona; Grand Gulch in Utah; Rae Lakes Loop & part of the John Muir Trail in the High Sierras of California, TCT-Catalina Island and the Southern 28 miles of the Lost Coast in California; Hiked in places like the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, Cinque Terre in Italy, Black Forest in Germany....

How long have you been backpacking?

Some backpacking in College but didn't really get into it until about seven years ago-now we can't seem to find enough time to do all the backpacking we want to do and we're both retired!!!

Volunteer hike leaders are the life's blood of this group. Would you be willing to lead trips at some point? (We provide training)
