This may not look good, but it tasted amazing after a long day of hiking, and it was really filling! We had corn, spicy beans and rice (really spicy, but good), backpacking risotto with chicken, and hot apple cider. For dessert we had granola bars, which were good, healthy, and tasty for a dessert. We also had water to drink and ramen noodles if we were still hungry but we didn't put them in the picture. We have to finish the regular food before we get the noodles so that we don't fill up on noodles.
Today we also got to bear bag. This means we put all our garbage and toiletries in a nylon sack and hang it high in a tree so that bears can't get to it. Last year the Wanderers saw bears but so far we haven't seen any. If our garbage is out of their reach they will leave us alone. We put our toiletries there too because they sometimes attract bears and if a bear eats things like toothpaste or soap he might get sick. Our leaders put our food in bear canisters. The canisters are really hard to open and close so that's why they did it for us.
Health rating: 6/10 (it had a lot of sodium, but our leaders told us we need sodium anyway on the trail)
Course: Trail dinner
Price: about $2.32
Pieces of hair and nature: 0 hair but 5 nature, it was an unlucky day: 2 ants and 3 pine needles
View: 10/10! Round Lake is so pretty!
Today's view is of Round Lake. We found some cute little water snakes here and the water was good for swimming.
After swimming there was a lot of dirt in the water so we had to filter our water through a bandanna before we could treat it with iodine. We have to treat all our water just in case there are things in it that might make us sick.
Today's song is Barges. A barge is a big flat ship.
Today we learned that it takes a long time to cook over a camp stove or a fire. For us it is fun but it would be hard to do it everyday like they have to do for Mary's Meals. Today we challenge anyone who went to camp this summer to donate to Mary's Meals!
