The third hike of the year proved to be the longest one to date at a whopping 10.9km roundtrip (though Rahe’s smartwatch clocked it at over 12km!!!) This trip was a good challenge as the students had to first grind their way through one of the most popular local hikes-The Abby Grind! After enjoying the reward of an awesome view at the top of the Grind, the group continued on to Taggart Peak, a much less well travelled section of trail. Highlights of the trip included Aman carrying two bags so his buddy Inder could complete the trek, and the entire group overcoming tired legs and bodies to summit Taggart Peak, a challenging hike through difficult terrain. Students discussed the importance of food choices for backpacking trips, and some learnt that long hikes require extra water (cough…Kentaro…cough). Extreme Outdoor Education students (and anyone else who wants to) leave a 100 word response below.
