Babes off the Beaten Path
Organized by: Mika Weinstein
EVENT DATE Aug 08, 2016
2016 marks the first year of Babes off the Beaten Path, the annual extended trip of Wild Wilderness Women (WWW). Babes off the Beaten Path’s inaugural expedition will take eight (8) Wild Wilderness Women, aka “The Babes,” to Glacier National Park. From August 9-12, we will be backpacking Glacier’s famous Dawson-Pitamakan Loop with the addition of a stretch on the Two Medicine Pass Trail to Cobalt Lake.
Please consider sponsoring us, to reduce our considerable out-of-pocket costs, and more importantly, to set a precedent for Babes off the Beaten Path as an accessible opportunity for all WWW’s members. Through communal support, we can change the perception that time in nature is for the privileged few.
- $300—The estimated number of grizzlies in Glacier National Park!
- $100—For the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service!
- $45—The approximate (growing) number of Wild Wilderness Women!
- $29.40—The mileage we will hike!
- $8—One dollar per Babe!
Your sponsorship goes toward:
- Rental cars, insurance, and gas
- Park permits
- Gear TSA won’t let us bring from home
Any remaining finances will be divided equally among The Babes to offset our airfare and personal gear expenses.
What’s in it for you:
You will receive an email newsletter after the trip, with photos and personal accounts, so you can see just what you made possible.
If we raise over $1,000, you will also have the option of receiving some babelicious swag!
Wild Wilderness Women is an outdoor recreation organization based in Washington D.C., with chapters developing nationwide. Through WWW, women find adventure, friendship, and confidence that inform their everyday lives. More than an insular club, we cultivate a growing social media presence to inspire women beyond our geographical reach. That makes the success of Babes off the Beaten Path all the more important.
