The winds did settle down a bit by morning, but we did get a few of the drizzles that were promised. Lucky, it only kept to a few drizzles and that didn't stop us. The plan was to head to campsite #5 and the lookout for lunch. After a little guidance on how to improve the group working a little more as a team during the hike, this class perfected it. Students were looking out for one another, ensuring everyone could easily keep up and we were even faster than the day before. We were at the lookout in record time. This was also the spot where one of the groups would stay the night, while the other group had about an hour to campsite #4. The afternoon was spent relaxing, swimming, making walking sticks, smores by the fire, and finally watching the sunset from the top of the cliff. We even heard wolves that night or was that the girls from the other campsite?
The boys from campsite #5 were up and ready to go early. They wanted to break the speed record to campsite #4 and were successful. It turned out to be another great day. Rain was predicted, we could feel and see the rain clouds coming, but it was sunshine that we had. A great way to complete our trip, as we followed the shores of Big Salmon Lake back to Arab Lake parking lot where the bus was waiting to take us back to school. Great trip, good fall colours, great students, good food and great weather. What else could you ask for (I know some of my students would be saying "flush toilets and a shower")?
