Up the Mountain & Headed Down!

Five short days ago, the campers headed out for their backpacking and rock climbing trip through the Blue Ridge Mountains. Following a short hike in on the first day, they were able to  rock climb and rappell; all of the campers had a great time and were able to make it to the top before the rain came. The next two days were spent hiking 18 miles to the top of the mountain where they enjoyed 360 degree views from 6,000 feet up. After spending a night at the top, the campers started down the other side of the mountain where they were able to take a North Carolina mountain bath in one of the many waterfalls along the trail. Today they will make it back to the van where they will head into town for a celebratory lunch on their way down to the Ocoee River for even more whitewater fun!
