our second week of edu-tourism activities

Sa 6/19. Hike over the Blue Mountains - sleeping at the Ambassabeth Cabins near Millbank. The van and SUV departed early in the morning from the hotel carrying the entire group of hikers, but unfortunately we became separated from one another, meeting at our departure point later than we had planned - around 10:00 am.

During the first of many cloudbursts of the day we met our trail guide Sylvene Sutherland aka 'Shaggy.'
