Backpacking Pictured Rocks National
**Departs no later than 9 a.m. on the 17th
Pre-trip meeting: Oct. 7 @ 6pm OE Office
There are few things simpler or more peaceful than putting on a pack
and heading into the wilderness for a few days.
And there aren’t many better places to do that than Pictured Rocks. This gorgeous wilderness area boasts towering
sandstone cliffs that plunge steeply into the beautiful blue waters of Lake
Superior. We will backpack along the
lakeshore for 3 days and 2 nights, culminating in expansive views of the famous
Miner’s Castle. If you are looking for a
weekend away from the hustle and bustle, or even if you would like to learn a
thing or two about backpacking, this is the trip for you.
Spelunking Mammoth Cave, Kentucky
Pre-trip meeting: Oct. 14 @ 6pm OE Office
Dive into an underground world of adventure with Outdoor
EdVentures. On this excursion we will be
headed deep under the Earth’s surface at Mammoth Cave National Park. The Mammoth Cave System is the longest cave
system in the world with over 390 miles of explored caverns and tunnels. We will be embarking on the “Wild Cave
Tour”. This tour will take us through
parts of the cave that are hidden from most other visitors. We will don helmets, kneepads and headlamps
and head underground for 6 hours, experiencing tight squeezes and enormous
subterranean caverns! Chest/hip
measurements cannot exceed 42” for this tour.
On Sunday you will have the opportunity to either hike, or check out one
of the many cave walking tours before we head home. So steel your nerves and dip below the
surface with us!
