Wednesday is a day off at camp. We had the opportunity to spend some quality time as a group without the campers. Our morning was spent with the Eaglecrest team on a fantastic trail on the Butte. We drove South of Palmer, about 35 minutes from camp. The hike itself was a strenuous hike just about straight up a hill.
While the journey was exhausting, our team bonded while meeting an adorable three-legged dog, Abby. At the top of the hike, you could see the mountains all around, in every direction. You could see the Knik glacier in the distance as well as its former pathway through Palmer.
After we got back down from the Butte, we headed back to camp for games. After a while, we drove to Palmer to get ice cream at a local parlor called The Big Dipper. We then made a pit stop at a gas station to pick up a few snacks and souvenirs, and headed out to dinner at The Noisy Goose. There were a lot of interesting signs with funny sayings on the walls. We were able to bond with our teammates and enjoy the delicious food.
We then got back to camp and hung out around the campfire and shared some life stories. We then had some free time, played some games before calling it a night. What a great day to enjoy God’s creation and each other!
