The first group has reached the summit! Only 1.2 miles, but 1500 feet
of climbing! Yikes! Great views and some delicious lunch!
Zip-Lining, guided “trust” walks through the woods, crossing the chocolate river one imaginary marshmallow at a time, Dempsey works the rest of UE through a human knot…
Snack break on our way to Carter Dome. (NH) Just your average school day at Quest.
We had a wonderful evening last night. Our guides cooked us a delicious meal of Mac and cheese with some stir fried veggies. If you have ever done any hiking, then you’ll know how good any meal tastes after 6 hours on the trail.
Overheard comments, “this is the best Mac and cheese ever, what kind is it?”, “can we serve this kind at school on Tuesdays?”.
To put into perspective, they have been on the trail since before our students went to NYC or DC last year. Our students were genuinely impressed and asked some incredibly astute questions.
It was quite chilly last night, in the mid-30s. At this point I have seen every one and have only been treated with smiles. So for now, everything seems great! Off to breakfast and then Carter Dome!
Talk to you soon.

NPR’s Garrison Keillor blogged in the Writers Almanac about Montessori’s birthday – you can either read it or listen to it.
It’s the birthday of Maria Montessori (books by this author), born on this day in Chiaravalle, Italy (1870). She was a bright student, and she wanted to study engineering. So when she was 13, against her father’s wishes, she entered a technical school, where all her classmates were boys. After a few years, she decided to pursue medicine, and she became the first woman in Italy to earn an M.D. degree.
