Ramblers are doing well overall! Rafting was a “blast!” Canoeing was gorgeous and climbing was great. Along Fish Creek, during canoeing, the amount of wildlife visible was astounding. The group saw cranes, loons, frogs, fish and a number of other fun creatures to see and watch. On their local flavor day, the group dropped into Lake Placid and ate some burgers at a local restaurant (with ice cream for desert!), went bowling, did a little lazar tag, and watched some ice skaters at the Olympic center! Right now they are hiking near Grissel Ocean lean-to and around Pharaoh Lake.
Their favorite meal so far? Homemade cranberry or chocolate chip pancakes made specially by Doug (one of the trip leaders)!
Our participants had a few words they wanted passed on to home:
Scott: Mom and dad, I miss you, but I want you to know I climbed really well! He also mentioned that the ice-skaters at Lake Placid were amazing to watch!
Alex: Rafting was cool, and I wish I got the burger in town. Alex did amazing on the climbing trip!
Julian: I love climbing! And Julian also enjoyed the day in town.
Emiliana: Mom and Dad I miss you, and I really enjoyed rafting. I’ve been laughing a lot on this trip!
Caleb: The best part was sleeping out on the island during the canoeing trip!
