    Lauren: I met you fishing with your son. I am leaving Fl to return to ND. I looked at your travels and would like to suggest some places in the west and Midwest which I believe you would like.

    Let’s stay in touch.

    Lauren –

    Great to see your page! I used to lead a Women of Color backpacking trip. For 13 years. It was with the Balanced Rock Foundation, located in El Portal, CA, right outside of Yosemite. Our trips were always in Yosemite. I know that someone who was my partner on my last trip took over leading it. It’s not going on this year (2020), but we’ll see if it happens next year. Let me know if you go!
    Google “Women of Color backpacking.” It used to come up on the first page.
