This student definitely thinks outside the box , leadership quality for sure !

Cerro Alto , wild Life


Yesterday  , I found this track on the board trail on Cerro Alto , Unusual in this area , as pigs avoid these busy hiking trails , they are most likely to feed on the west ridge . Be
 careful when hiking after dark . They do attack without  warning .

Interesting people on Cerro Alto

Yesterday I met this fast hiking young lady , Katie on Cerro Alto 

She was carrying 50 lbs and doing a 20 minute mile pace 
while climbing the steepest part of the mountain trail .
This girl is a firefighter from Wyoming .
