Peta re-introduced me to the BWCA in the winter of 1999 with a youth group. I slept in a quinzee, climbed a rock palisade, blazed snowshoe trails through the forest, and skied on lakes amidst the islands. She has brought me back to the BWCA every summer and most winters since. I will admit, I prefer the BWCA in the winter stillness. Yet, going to sleep in a cozy tent with loons serenading me to sleep is not bad either. I have been one of the lucky people to savor many of Peta’s gourmet meals over the decades. Every person should experience the safe, yet exhilarating guided trips through Women’s Wilderness Discovery.
