The first group has reached the summit! Only 1.2 miles, but 1500 feet
of climbing! Yikes! Great views and some delicious lunch!
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.

On Thursady night March 8, the middle school class presented a dramatis personae performance based on conversations imagined between the founding fathers. The setting was a tea party at Dolly Madison’s house. Students discussed, in character, many of the issues that were important to the formation of a new nation.
Students also presented their independent research projects. The middle school has spent the majority of the year studying the effects of water quality on local ecology. For the science fair, students were tasked with extending what they had learned and exploring a related topic more deeply. Student research was excellent and adhered to a strict scientific rigor. While not all results were what was expected, everyone found a great deal of success.
