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.
