DEEP students on the Oct. 16-20, 2019 Black Forest backpacking trip in Lycoming County. The specific place is atop Hemlock Mountain, elevation 2,060' in what is commonly referred to as "PA's Grand Canyon". During the four day experience students learned backpacking aspects, on and off-trail navigation, LNT (Leave No Trace) campcraft, the awareness of pushing oneself beyond perceived physical, emotional, mental and social limitations. These traits made this experience much more than just a backpacking trip for these DEEP students.
