This year's conference focused on hikes, tours and lots of good times outdoors. Yet, Friday morning was devoted to workshops to help volunteers build their skills to benefit the North Country Trail. Above, Bruce Matthews, NCTA Executive Director, leads a session on Chapter Leadership.

A number of different hikes were offered for the afternoon. Here a group walks through the Chequamegon National Forest on the NCT, on the way to the Brunschweiller River.

The silent and live auctions are always a popular part of the conference. Here, Bobby Koepplin, Board of Directors President, and Matthews model the ever-popular animal hats.

The evening concluded with a funny and inspirational talk by Frida Waara, who skied to the North Pole in 2001 with 12 other women. She inspired us to pursue our dreams and that everything is more fun with snow!
