Journey to Oz 2012
April 13, 2018

Spectacular! We took the Lakina River to Kennecott trip and it was the most beautiful 7 days I have experienced. My favorite part was traversing Hidden Creek Valley. Locals call it Oz because the hillsides are such a lush green compared to the bare rock and snow of the mountain backdrop that they glow with vitality. We had mist blowing through that day so it was pretty magical and the wildflowers were intense! It is difficult to overstate how continually spectacular the scenery is. Our guide took great care of us and I felt entirely safe the whole time. The food he prepared every day was really good. He also pushed us to our physical limits without breaking any of us. It was the hardest 7 days I’ve experienced-this trip is not for the fainthearted! No trails for the first four days and up and down steep slopes, sometimes scree covered, all with heavy packs on… Totally worth it if you are up for the challenge!
