Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt

Our annual Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt was challenging and exciting! Families were given a sheet with a series of questions such as "Who discovered Mountain Lake and in what year?" Families also had to collect different items such as leaves from a coniferous & deciduous trees, rhododendron leaves and sedimentary rocks from the lake bed. They had to identify and take pictures of different animal tracks. The most challenging portion of the scavenger hunt was to hike as fast as you can to the highest point at Mountain Lake and take a picture of the view and record the elevation.

The first family back who had completed all the tasks including the grueling hike to Bald Knob on ice was the Moore family. Below are a few pictures, courtesy of Jay Moore.
