Outdoor Ed Hikes ‘Three States in One Day’


On October 8 and 9, eight Upper School students backpacked the corner mountains of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York as part of the School’s Outdoor Education program. Dubbed “Three States in One Day” by trip leader Ted Barker-Hook, the trip required hikers to bring in sleeping bags, tents, and food. They filtered water from a stream to drink and cook, making dehydrated meals and storing food scraps in a “bear box” to veer off scavenging animals.
