This is an easy overnight backpack trip, the field component of the Leave No Trace Trainer course. We will be camping in the shrub-steppe and using the area as our classroom.

The water at Ancient Lakes is not safe to drink, even if treated, so we will have to  haul our water in.

This is a VERY easy backpack trip, allowing plenty of time for instruction, learning and usually some exploring.
