#UASAtoms Climb Bald Mountain

On Friday, October 19, 2018, blue skies and perfect fall weather welcomed #UASCS sophomores to the Adirondacks. Scholars eagerly faced the challenge of climbing Bald Mountain, where they encountered fantastic fall foliage, crisp fresh air, and panoramic views. Many scholars faced their fear of heights and climbed the fire tower at the very top of the 2,313-foot summit. The climb was challenging at times, slippery with wet leaves and mud that tried to suck your shoes off if you weren’t careful, but none of our scholars gave up or turned back. The view was definitely worth it.
