I guess sunrise is a natural alarm clock because I heard that the Builders of Wilderness Skills were up at 5:45am this morning! I checked in as they were waiting for the water to boil so that they could have some oatmeal (see the Photo of the Day). After that, they packed up and headed up Wildcat Mountain. Their destination was Ladleton, a town from the early 1900’s that specialized in making, you guessed it, wooden ladles. Now there are just old stone walls, a few foundations, and some great campsites. Tomorrow they will be finishing their hike over Wildcat and taking some time at the lake to learn basic canoe strokes and rescue techniques. That should make for some great pics! Let me know if you need anything and I will have more for you tomorrow evening.
