The trip's beautiful weather prompted swimming and body-surfing at every opportunity. Roaring bonfires were built and maintained to warm those returning from the waves. Blood-red sunsets and hot coals were a pleasant way to close out a day of difficult hiking.
On another note, the beached whale that we encountered in June of '08 was almost completely gone. Nature does not take long in cleaning its beaches.

Students were extremely lucky to have another set of superb chaperones on this adventure. Many thanks to Charlie Snelling, Roc Gianni, Sara Diers, Jon Paul Dowdell and Jess Dowdell. This quite simply could not have happened without you.
