Tuesday: Day One in the Snow on Burleigh Mountain

We spent our first day "off campus" getting used to packing down places for tents and building kitchens and living rooms. Kayla taught us everything we needed to know about setting up tents and making sure things were done as efficiently as possible.

Then, of course, there was the sledding. The slope was fast and the day was warm. Everyone took at least 3 runs and most people got some air off the jump. A small scouting crew went all the way up to the top of the mountain and got a glimpse of snowshoe hare tracks.

By the end of the day we were ready to eat our pita pizzas cooked over the open fire. We lounged in our "living room" and eventually called it a night. Several of us planned to sleep out because the night was so warm, but the onset of rain sent us into the tents. We woke up early the next morning, packed up camp, and headed out.
