189 Badass Female Roundtable Discussion Grand Canyon Edition

Part two of Trust The Trail Podcast two part series on backpacking the Grand Canyon. We sit down with the ALL female Badass Backpacker Group that spent 5 nights deep into the Grand Canyon from the North Rim. What did they learn about themselves? What did they learn about pack weight and how to manage their food and especially water? What’s it like carrying up to 8 liters of water? This roundtable discussion shares on how they could have improved pack weight and the mental obstacles they faced.
