CCS - 2015 09 28 Hike

Ever tell someone to take a hike? Ever want to say this to Ms. Rieger? Well now you do not have to. She took some brave students and a few fellow teachers, a custodian and superintendent to trek up McKenzie Mountain. It has an elevation of 3890 feet. At times the climbers had to really climb on their hands and knees. It was a nearly 10.5 mile hike. thankfully the weather was great. I also heard that the stops to refuel with some chocolate were very welcome. Especially by Trey. Chris Cook and Kieran Gibson lead the charge up the mountain. For those on the trip who were tired - I also heard that Ms. Rieger won the women's division in a bike race the day before. I took a nap both days. Great pictures!
