9th Grade Class Treks Through White Mountains
With less than a week of school in the books, our brave and ambitious 9th grade class ventured to New Hampshire where they trekked through the White Mountains for the first wilderness of the school year.
About the 9th Grade Trip (With Photos!)
Approximately 45 ninth grade students spent three days and two nights in the Pemigewasset Wilderness of the White Mountains, the highest range on the East Coast. This is a spectacular region offering incredible views, and the trip consisted of one night in an Appalachian Mountain Club Hut and one night camping at a mountainside campsite. The views were unparalleled; view photos here!
