Trapp Hills Camping Trip

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This past weekend, a group of students went on an overnight hiking trip in the Trapp Hills and the Porcupine Mountains. Lead by history teacher Michael Salat, and Graduate Fellow Greg Handley, the trip was a chance for ten students to go hiking and camping before the winter really sets in.  The students hiked 11 miles in the two-day trip, and camped on the Escarpment in the Porcupine Mountains.  While on their trip, they explored the woods finding wildlife, waterfalls and even a cave in the side of a hill.  For dinner, the students had a hearty meal of red beans and rice and hot dogs. Some students even braved the chilly weather and slept underneath the stars huddled together around the fire.  Sounds like the perfect way to start out November.
