Backpack the wild beauty of the largest national park in the States. Spectacular vistas and scenic beauty will abound as we travel through the highest concentration of glaciers and high peaks in North America and visit McCarthy and Kennicott, historic relics of the bygone copper-mining era. Our moderate cross-country route among glaciers will feature varied campsites and opportunities to explore our awe-inspiring surroundings.
The city of Waukesha has applied for an exception to the Great Lakes Compact in order to divert water from Lake Michigan to Waukesha. This is concerning because Waukesha has failed to seriously consider other possible solutions, their requested withdrawl of 10.1 million gallons per day is well in excess to their current water demands, and water diversion impacts storm water management, water quantity and quality, and aquatic life. Furthermore, this decision would set precedent for other communities to apply for diversion.
The Wisconsin DNR has released a draft Technical Review and draft Environmental Impact Statement on the City of Waukesha’s Diversion Application and is seeking public comments on those documents. The DNR will hold public hearings on August 17 and 18, 2015 on the draft Technical Review and draft EIS. The public comment period will run through August 28, 2015.

Spend a week backpacking and base camping in the North Cascades' Stehekin Valley. We'll enter this historical alpine area on a 55-mile boat ride on Lake Chelan, then backpack to two successive base camps, spending three layover days at each with day hikes to Goode Ridge, Walker Park, Cascade Pass, and Horseshoe Basin. Finally, we'll backpack down the valley for a final night at a wilderness ranch.
Join us on the road less traveled as we explore granite peaks, glaciated valleys, and beautiful alpine lakes in this extraordinary area of the Sierra Nevada. Our 50-mile on-trail loop begins and ends at Twin Lakes, with a spectacular traverse of Matterhorn Canyon in between. A layover day allows us to climb peaks, visit lakes, or just relax.
Our approach to Rae Lakes will start high in Onion Valley (9,192 feet) and cross two 11,000-foot passes along the way. We will stay two days in the Rae Lakes area, relaxing and enjoying views of Painted Lady and Fin Dome. We'll continue past Arrowhead and Dollar Lakes before crossing the Sierra Crest on the beautiful Sawmill Pass Trail.
With experts from the Glacier Institute, we'll hike amid the spectacular scenery of the Crown of the Continent, learning about glaciers and climate change, the geology of the park, local flora, and grizzly bears. At day's end, we'll return to our rustic cabins for hot showers, a warm meal, and lively conversation. Hikes are moderate to strenuous and range from 9 to 12 miles.
