Campin'

For the last two days I have been camping with over 300 sixth graders on the Appalachian Trail. 
Needless to say I am exhausted and aching all over.
 It was so beautiful

 We explored the stream and caught crayfish and little fish

 We attempted to catch frogs in the pond but ended up only catching salamanders.

 We hiked 3 miles of the Appalachian Trail...
This is where the sunburn and hurting occurred...


But the view from the top of the Ridge was breathtaking!


 Had to get a picture to prove I did it =)

 We did have a bit of a storm...

Our cabin: 
This is where no sleeping took place...

Of course I get cabin #13 with this written on the wall:

 my bunk

Next morning, the calm after the storm

We did team building activities:


 There were deer everywhere and they would walk so close to us!


 In the far distance you can see the ridge where we hiked. 

& last but not least, the swamp. 

Quite an adventure!
I wish we did cool things like this when I was in middle school.

Even I learned so much about succession and the environment!
