We have had a super day at camp and the High Trails Lodge was extremely exuberant at dinner as many of our trips returned to camp and everyone was eager to share their adventures. They all spent time in some of Colorado’s most beautiful wilderness areas, many of them climbed mountains, and all enjoyed the comradeship of their peers and counselors. A few trips are still out tonight and will return tomorrow, and then everyone will be here together over the weekend.
There were only about 30 campers eating dinner at the Big Spring Lodge tonight because most of the boys are on overnight trips. These boys have some super adventures planned for tomorrow including an all-day climb of Mt. Princeton and an all-day Sanborn Spring tank Bomber Hike, a major undertaking to hike to all of the 30 spring tanks on our property.
The Junior Campers in both camps are camped out tonight on camp property and are enjoying this overnight adventure.
Firefighters made good progress on the Waldo Canyon Fire today and reached 10% containment. They are beginning to discuss the possible opening of Highway 24 so hopefully that will take place in the not-too-distant future.
More news tomorrow…Jane
