Patagonia Chile 2017: Training Hike – Elk-Thurston Trail

Posted by on July 24, 2016 in Blog Post, News & Updates, Training | Comments Off on Patagonia Chile 2017: Training Hike – Elk-Thurston Trail

For our third training hike we drove out to the Fraser Valley and hiked a very popular Elk and Thurston Mountain trail. It was a steep, hot day but the youth did a wonderful job taking it all in stride. What a beautiful scene below us with the Fraser River valley and its communities to one side and the rushing waters of the Chilliwack River and its forested valley to the other.

Thanks to our wonderful volunteers of the day – Miyuki who applied her skills as a Registered Massage Therapist, Crystal our ever dedicated Streetfront volunteer, Kili participants dynamic duo Jesse and Sean. Thanks to our Britannia school administrator and Street2Peak team member Dr. Andrew Schofield for his assistance as well.
