Sum-It-Up Sunday : Week #4

Hello all! It's been another wonderful week here at St. Mike's. With the temperatures dropping and the leaves beginning to change, fall is making its first appearances in VT and we're loving it! (In other words, expect some themed posts coming up in the near future!)

To celebrate, I couldn't think of a better way than conquering an old foe...Mount Hunger! Last fall, we hiked this toughie on the first (unexpected) snow of the year. Unfortunately, we were unprepared and forced to turn around less than a 1/4 mile from the top. But this Saturday, we set out to get it done once and for all!

It was a little brisk for a dip, but still couldn't help stopping for a photo op at the waterfall.

Not sure if I defeated the mountain or if it defeated me. I think the latter. But we summited nonetheless! It was pretty cold at the top, so we could only stay long enough to take a quick picture and scarf down our sandwiches. If you're looking for a challenge, this is the hike for you! 

I hope you all enjoyed your week! Curious about how other students are celebrating fall at SMC, or about anything else for that matter? Be sure to check out our other Social Ambassador blogs, and don't miss our next Knightchats on Thursday, 10/6 and Tuesday, 10/25!

In the meantime, stay tuned for the next What-to-Know Wednesday on the 28th!
