ABS Fit Kids
May 18th 2017
Yesterday was a wonderful day for Fit Kids. At first we had some concerns that we might have to work around a thunder storm, but as we neared the dismissal of school all radar showed that any storm wouldn't hit until later on that evening.
With that information we felt comfortable heading into the woods and attempting to see if we could find a short cut to the famous Falls location.
We started out by cutting through the Mountains Edge Condo parking lot and trudging up Ski Tow road towards where the road ends. Before we came to the end of the road we took a side trail that our wonderful parent volunteer Natalie told me about.
Staggering the groups as we headed out to the into woods I heard via the radio the request from the group before us if it would be alright to get their feet wet in the water. Now I knew that a slight stream rans through the Last Mile trail. So I just assumed it was a slight break in the trail and they just wanted to get their feet wet. When I came around the bend I saw that I was extremely and that this slight detour was in fact a fun destination.
All of the members feeling hot and over tired just jumped right into the water. Some members a bit more then others, but no matter who they all loved the refreshing cool water. Even Emmett took a slight break in the stream. Lying right down in one of the small wadding pools.
With everyone enjoying the water and a majority of them soaked it seemed to be fruitless to have them gear back up to trudge further on the trail. So instead we remained in the water until 4:30. At that time they got their socks and shoes back on. Picked up any water bottles, backpacks and anything else that had be disposed by our group.
All of the members seemed to be extremely happy with our journey and even though it wasn't the so called Falls that everyone has wanted to go to. I think it didn't matter in the long run, because everyone had a great time enjoying nature!
This coming Tuesday we will be getting large rocks and bring them back to the Warming Hut to paint. We will be using them for decorations to show our appreciation for using the Warming Hut. If anyone has an paint brushes or acrylic paint they wish to donate to the decorating of the rocks please drop them off at ABS Main Office before Tuesday at 2.
Have a wonderful weekend!
