Lori and LuAnn have developed their guide business "Transformational Treks" based on their mutual desire to take women on wilderness trips for personal growth and renewal of spirit. Lori and LuAnn discovered their love for wilderness as children when their father ventured with them into the BWCA for extended wilderness adventures. They were hooked into the beauty and splendor of this unique landscape. Here they learned the joy of paddling into new lakes, discovering unique campsites, and simple meals cooked over a fire. They relished the physical challenges of portages, long paddles and handling whatever weather nature dished out that year. As young girls they found the peace, strength and inspiration provide by those lakes and trees. Now they provide the opportunity for these amazing adventures to women across the country.
