It was 93 degrees here today according to the weather station in Ashland. We spent the day working on paddling strokes and canoe rescue on Scopan Lake (3 miles from the field school). When we got back to camp at the end of the day I went for a swim in the pond. It was hot!
The picture above is from week 1 of this course, 6 weeks ago. We had snowshoed down to the river and were working on fire skills. Snowshoes were mandatory, as the snow was over the knee. What a difference a few weeks makes.
We’ve been busy with practical exams on a variety of subjects as well as preparing for our final trip (leaving next week). Seven weeks down, two to go. It’s flying by.
