Camp is Done, Gone the Sun

All is well

Safely rest

God is nigh

Yep, the Northbound trail group got it together this morning, packed up camp and cooked breakfast in record time, and hit the trail before 8am. Home can be a strong motivator! The team of Nima, Jack, Andrew, Zak, and Shane also made record time on the trail as they raced the rain clouds to the pickup spot, arriving even before the pickup team had arrived. They averaged nearly 3 mph in packs this morning, and were happy and cheerful as they headed off to the showers and to Bob's treat of monster cinnamon rolls from Falls Market. It's super when they learn good lessons and build stronger friendships, and this group certainly did.

So now we're in our last throes of packing up for the ride home and will soon be on the road. Another summer camp fades to only great memories and stories.
