A Lovely Labor Day Weekend

(Just for Fun, Class of 2015) Permanent link   All Posts
Cantrell Photo Labor Day weekend is one of my favorite long weekends in the fall school year because it still feels like summer and the outdoor activities are endless! This Labor Day weekend a group of eleven of us left on Friday afternoon and drove to New Hampshire. We pitched a tent, made a fire, and went to bed earlier so we were ready for our hike the next day. On Saturday, we woke up early and drove to the bottom of Mount Washington. We started the hike at 0730 and ended around 1500. It was numerous hours of beautiful scenery, beautiful weather, and great friends. I had so much fun climbing up and down the mountain and it was a great day to do it! The weather was perfect, not too hot, but not too cold. After our hike we went back to the campsite ate good food and relaxed. Sunday morning we went tubing down a river, which was a great way to relax and unwind from the previous day. Sunday night we decided to drive back to the Academy because the weather report was calling for rain. Monday I went to the beach with friends and soaked in the rays (almost felt like I was at home).

 

Without a doubt, this was one of the best Labor Day weekends I have had and I was so fortunate to be with my very best friends. I will always remember the hike and cherish the experience of being able to hang out and live with all of my friends. It’s hard to think that in eight and a half months we will all be saying our “see you later” and the unknown of when we will be seeing each other again will set in. I remind myself everyday to enjoy every moment of this place because I sometimes take it for granted and it won’t be this way forever.
