Sept. 25th Hike with S.O.C.K. and the Boys & Girls Capitol West Club

Sept. 25 – Red Pine Lake Hike

This Friday S.O.C.K. went out with six teens from the Boys & Girls Capitol West Club, along with their leader Erin. A volunteer from Westminster College, Luke, also attended the hike with us. It was a beautiful sunny fall day for a hike along the Red Pine Lake trail. The golden aspen trees quaked above us as we stopped for breaks beneath their shade. We hiked for about an hour ’til we reached Lone Peak Wilderness area and stopped at a gorgeous viewpoint overlooking Little Cottonwood Canyon. Along the way we discussed the meaning and importance of wilderness and enjoyed the breath taking views, fall colors and creek crossings. Since we didn’t make it all the way to the top, we decided to stop at Lisa Falls on our way down to cool off by the water fall. The boys had a blast climbing on the cliff edge and boulders, and Kimberley was happy to see a waterfall like she had asked earlier. The teens appreciated their time outdoors and hope to return for another hike with S.O.C.K. soon!
