First Training Hike Completed!
On Sunday, July 6th fifteen students attended their first Mt. Kilimanjaro training hike. We hiked the 13 km’s from Deep Cove to Lynn Canyon along the Baden Powell Trail.
Despite the rain falling the first half of our hike the temperature was warm and the spirits were high. Not only was it an opportunity to meet up as a Kilimanjaro team and hike together towards our common goal it was also a chance to get out on the trail and continue to build our excitement for our epic trip in 2015. Many students began to test out their mountain footwear for the first time and some foot care was required. The group worked together as a team, supported each other and while they were experiencing some first hike soreness all were happy to finally be training!
