Once again this year many alumni members descended on HSR for a fun-filled, fall weekend in the woods. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and not a bug to be found – what a way to start the weekend! Some groups hit the trails like warriors ready to clear almost any obstacle, other groups went on a recovery mission at Camp Gay Venture and others started painting up a storm around camp. All of us had a mission.
As the day progressed every trail was walked and cleared, Hurst cabin was painted and a few new things were acquired. Everyone had a chance to stop and enjoy the beautiful colours of fall as well as catch up on old times with friends. Once diner time rolled around everyone was tired from a hard day of work. After diner was over we all were able to enjoy a great fire supplied to us by ranger Keith.
On Sunday, after a bit of work at HSR and Gay Venture, we all realized we had to head home back to the grind of everyday life. I know I wasn’t the only one wondering when I could come back to this place we all love so much.
Thanks to everyone who attended for making Trails Weekend 2001 a success:
