The connotation of “wander” embodies the spirit of roaming, voyaging and touring, a journey. To wander is to take time to explore, to drift and experience life outside of one’s normal routines.

Six-hundred women from across Texas and beyond personified this ideology by attending the first annual Women Who Wander outdoor retreat on March 29-31.

The retreat offered women a weekend of guided excursions, classes, panel discussions, dining and music all held at various locations in Uvalde County.

Courses and excursions included but were not limited to hiking, kayaking, painting, yoga, cooking, guided meditation, archery, self defense, and paddle boarding.

Proceeds from the retreat benefitted the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation, specifically the Gear up for Game Wardens program. The funding total raised from this event is still being calculated.
