Middle School Hikes at Great Falls

On Wednesday, Parkmont middle school students had a fantastic adventure day. They headed to Great Falls, where they took a hike with teachers Nijole, Sam, Matt, and Troy. They hiked on the historic C & O Canal and out to Great Falls itself, along the Potomac River.  In addition to seeing some very high water at Great Falls after all of last week's rain, students saw an enormous black snake, and got to skip stones.  

It was a great opportunity to spend quality time with one another, be outdoors, get some exercise, and learn more about nature and our own endurance potential. Everyone had a great time, and we look forward to the next adventure day!
