We are a group of women who take 50-mile backpack trips in California's Sierra Mountains. Early in our history we named ourselves FLAB (Fun-Lovin' Adventuresome Broads), a moniker that has accurately described us for more than two decades.
The ten women shown here represent a 30-year age span, with hikers with 20 years of FLAB participation all the way to women on their first backpack trip. Geographically we represent a core group founded in Southern California who now live 3,000 miles apart. We hope that, with the help of this blog, you will also join the ranks of women who backpack!
