Day 1 Going Great

Mon, 07/22/2019 - 01:15

Goose Rock HikersAlpengirls are having a great time on day one of camp - the weather is perfect, all blue sky and lots of sun and a very competent and enthusiatic group of Alpengirls! The first evening of camp was the Alpengirl "Welcome Burrito" dinner followed by M & M Getting to Know You game on the beach at sunset. This morning Izzy acted as first LOD and did a great job keeping the group upbeat and moving. It was a mellow start in the morning followed by a hike from the beach up to the top of Goose Rock where we enjoyed views of Mt Baker, Mt Rainier, North Cascades, Olympics and Victoria BC. Sage was an Alpenolympic winner today with best rain storm impression! Ashlyn won Alpenolympic Rock Skiiping event with stylie through the legs twirl and a skip! Sadie and Juniper led singing games at top of Goose Rock at lunch. Today we saw a baby Harbor Seal on the beach and currently the Cook Group (Kaeli, Izzy, Carisa) are making Stir Fry Dinner while Natalia, Olivia and Katya teach the group how to play volleyball. We are really looking forward to the 3-day overnight kayaking trip starting tomorrow and will blog and post photos again after back on the mainland on July 25. ~ Erin (aka "Spruce" and Lyra aka "Bear Cat")
