A Taste of the Stein May 9-12, 2019

The second major hiking trip of the year saw students experience beautiful weather and gorgeous scenery as they hiked through the Stein River Valley. Highlights of the trip included connecting with the aboriginal history of the area, through pictographs which have lasted for thousands of years, and sleeping under a star-filled sky. Comm Rec Extreme students (and anyone else who wants to) leave a 100 word response below.

    The stein was the hardest but prettiest hike I have ever been on. The second day was a killer for the legs but it was worth the gorgeous view at the end of the trail. I can’t believe how far we hiked. Everyday for three days we got up, ate food and went on the journey of a lifetime. The memories on the trip are everlasting and I hold them very close to my heart. I would definitely recommend this trip for everyone. My only tip would be to bring lots of food and water.

    The Stein River Valley was a very tiring trip but kind of fun. It was a very interesting. For someone who has camped only once before, there are things i’d like to change. The first com rec camping trip educated me on the right equipment to bring to prepare for the bigger trip (aka. stein valley). However, with that new knowledge, food was a major factor i still managed to mess up. I had really good ways to store my food and even went on a cabella’s run for most of my meals. However, i really recommend picking up foods you’re certain you’ll even like. Because some of the food i bought from cabella’s was disgusting. So i didn’t eat at certain times. Except the mac n cheese, that was the best. I wish i brought food that i’d actually would want to eat. I was so focused on “protein bars” “nuts” “healthy compact-able foods” that when i was hungry…i really didn’t wanna eat some gross grainy bars and foods. i suggest packing SOME foods you actually snack on a lot. And if some of it’s junk food, who cares because one, you’ll actually wanna eat it, two, you have a mix between good and…ehh bad ishhh. And three, you’re gonna burn a crap ton on the hike and your legs will probably fall off by the end of it. Also a bonus, you’re calf muscles will be super formed and make you look like you work out lmao.
