Waterloo-Oxford’s Outers Club took its third and final camping trip to the Adirondack Mountains in New York State over the May long weekend. The Outers Club, which was founded by teacher Kirk Bergey five years ago, ventures to Bruce Peninsula National Park in the fall, Killarney
Provincial Park in the winter, and the Adirondacks (near Lake Placid in New York) in the spring. The group of outdoor enthusiasts also goes on five Sunday day hikes throughout the year.
During their recent camping trip, the Outers Club hiked up Algonquin Mountain (the pictures with the clear view), and Mount Marcy (the pictures with snow). The hikers trekked through bitter cold and snow all the way to the top of Mount Marcy on May 19. At 5,344 feet, Mount Marcy is the highest peak in the Adirondack Mountains. It was a 26 km hike up the mountain and back. Algonquin Mountain is the seconnd highest peak in the Adirondacks.
The trip was from May 16 to May 20. The students on the trip included Jacob Brenneman, Ryan Osborne, Kacie Weber, Steph Mueller, Justin Fitzgerald, Matt Salese and Anthony Todd. Parent Mike Osborne joined the group on their Adirondack adventure.
