The Grade 11's took the trails of Gatineau Park on March 2nd. The day started a bit slow as the bus was late to pick us up and as we arrived it started to rain slightly as we arrived at Camp Fortune, but lucky for us, this didn't last long and we had an amazing day.
For many students in the class, this was the 2nd time they were on this trip and it showed, as we moved really quickly through the trails to Huron Cabin for lunch. Most were also skate skiing, which was perfect on the groomed trails that had lots of fresh snow on them.
After a quick repair to some poles and a nice lunch, we headed for Champlain and Etienne Brule lookouts to enjoy the misty view of the Ottawa River Valley. This was followed by a wonderful parkway descent to Parking Lot #10. There were a few students who climbed up the Burma downhill to repeat an experience they enjoyed from last year. Most students stayed at the bottom to watch the entertainment unfold.
All in all, it was just a wonderful day on the trails.
