It wasn’t difficult to get everyone to head to bed at 8:30 p.m. last night. Yesterday’s boat ride had exhilarated and exhausted and the evening stories by the flickering campfire soothed those restless minds that were anticipating a 4 a.m. wake-up for a moonlit hike to Rams Head to Watch the sunrise. Our second time down that trail but this time with only the moon for light and the wind for company as our hike was to be in silence. The silvery light of the moon was mesmerizing!
Though we didn’t need them, the stars were shining above pointing to North in case we lost our way.
When we arrived at Rams Head, the group spread out, finding a spot to soak up the breeze and watch the sky waltz in that wonderful dance we call dawn. It was truly spectacular – in the words of one student, “This is the best thing I have done in my life ever!”
