We are two women who love to backpack. Some might call it an obsession, others call it self care. When we aren't backpacking we are planning our next adventure. We find that we are our happiest when we are out on the trail, climbing peaks, and sleeping under starry sky's. We think backpacking is meditative and we want to share the backcountry  with more people, especially women. 

Montana Backpacking Trips

Growing up the the mountains of northwest montana Madison has an affinity for the outdoors and sharing that passion with others. She finds walking with her head down through the forest to be one of the most meditative practices that one can do. The way life widdles itself down into simple acts of survival in the outdoors brings her a sense of peace and focus. Sharing this peace and sense of accomplishment with other women is one of the main reasons she confounded GNWG. 

As one of the founders and lead guides of GNWG, Sally feels that backpacking is meditative and can positively impact people in plentiful ways. She wants to share the backcountry with more people, especially women.  She loves her daily yoga, running, cold plunging, and meditation routines. Sally is in constant pursuit to expand her knowledge on the outdoors and what it has to offer. 

Both Madison & Sally have attained their Wilderness First Responder (WFR) Certificates and their Avalanche Level 1.
