AT Trek no. 10
Six of our older scouts plus Pepper hiked around 8 miles on day 1 and 5 miles on day 2. This overnight trek was both very scenic and very tiring. It was the most difficult hike so far not because of distance, but because of the terrain and elevation differences. It also was cold at night. [approx. 26 deg F.] We hiked up and down Bear Mountain and several smaller mountains. From the top of one of the mountains, we could see Manhattan roughly 50 miles away.
