Mt. Mansfield with the Wilderness Program!

As I mentioned in my last post, today I got to hike Vermont's Mt. Mansfield with SMC's Wilderness Program! It was a great day of hiking, there were 6 of us plus 2 leaders, and we got to roll up in what our fearless leader, Nelly, liked to call the "greased whale". It was a church van.

We left a little after 8, got there at 9, and summited in pretty good time. I don't remember when we got to the top, but we made it up and down by 1:30.

Here are some photos of the view!

View to the west (Lake Champlain and NY)...

I definitely recommend one of these hikes (if you're into hiking and outdoorsy-type stuff), cause the people going with you will probably rock; everyone on my trip today was pretty cool! I'd already known a few of them  from my floor, but it's a great way to meet new people and get fresh mountain air, and all those other hippie things that VT students are into!
