Burley Middle School Visits Spruce Knob

A couple of weeks ago, we welcomed 6th graders from Burley Middle School in Charlottesville, VA up to Spruce Knob for a few days of hiking, games, science, and survival skills. Burley Middle School has been visiting The Mountain Institute under the guidance of Judy Cutright for some years now, and she always brings a group of curious and earnest students with her. We'll be looking forward to our paddling trip down the Potomac River in the fall with Burley Middle School. Below are some photos the teachers snapped during the Burley Middle School field trip.
