In February 2016, a group of Vision Loss Resources participants headed up north for winter outdoor adventures with experienced guides from Wilderness Inquiry. We stayed at the wonderful lodge at YMCA’s Camp Menogyn, and we stretched our boundaries with new and exciting activities: from sled dog racing to snowshoeing, from sleeping in a quinzy (kind of like an igloo made of snow) to hiking through snowy forests. As you’ll see below, many of us were crazy enough to take a dip in the frozen lake. In fact, most of us did the polar plunge multiple times!
In all, the experience was an incredible confidence-booster. We tried new things, felt self-sufficient despite the cold winter weather, and trusted and challenged each other. We’re so grateful to Wilderness Inquiry’s great guides.
