Wilderness Guide

June 2022 Ely, MN
“Loved getting to spend time outside and learn patience, communication, leadership, and wilderness skills. Adored the community and close relationships this experience fostered. The job did not feel like your typical boring job, watching hours tick by; each day was fruitful and interesting and a learning experience, yet also so much fun. The beautiful Boundary Waters were such a blessing to have as my ‘office’ and I’m so excited to continue leading trips in even more remote landscapes. I felt confident and fulfilled.”
