Thimbleberry, lodgepole, lupine, wild roses, oregon grapes, wild strawberries, beargrass, arrowleaf balsamroot; these are the flowers and shrubs that I recognized as we made our way up rocky slopes into
WRFI is a very special thing. The places we saw, the people we met with, and the tight community we formed is unlike anything else I’ve ever experienced. There were highs and lows, some days harder than others, but the memories made have been worth it all. I will never forget our hikes in Montana and Canada or floating the Flathead River, and will always be grateful for the knowledge and growth I’m taking away from this trip.
