The last hike of the Fall saw six brave Outdoor Education students tackle a very difficult traverse up Elk Mountain, Mount Thurston and Gloria Peak. Starting at the base of Elk at 9am, students ascended over 1600m in elevation over the course of 10 hours to finish the hike at 645pm in the Chilliwack Community Forest. The snowy conditions made for a beautiful hike through the forest, but also added another layer of difficulty as students had to trudge through 6 inches of snow. Overall the students displayed great determination and resiliency to complete the hike, and learnt that with proper preparation even a difficult challenge can be overcome.
