Many of the groups I take on hikes are new hikers or no one that has taken a backpacking trip, throughout my time working as a Trip leader I try to expose my participants to everything I can, to show them, to help them understand why people hike and do it like its a job.

They love the Exposure, the adrenaline rush from just hiking a 6000 ft tall mountain or higher. the views are always breathtaking, the fire at the end of the days hike is warming to the heart. The exposure is the cure to our stress the understanding of i’m very small compared to the world.

Take this away and we lose sight of why its there. Go see the world its not leaving you behind, your leaving it behind.
