Skylight Pond Photo Journal
For this year's Mountain Leader Course trainings, I again returned to Skylight Pond trail with the 2023 group. To get a better hold on the trail, reference last year's trip report.
Do take note, the middle section of Forest Road #54 is closed just past the Emily Proctor Trail. I recommend accessing this trailhead via Forest Road #59, off of Route 125 in Ripton Vermont. Though the road is no smooth travel, I did manage a 12-passenger van to the trailhead.
This past Sunday, we taught backcountry cooking, tarping, bear bagging, and water filtration. Moving skills out to the field, as opposed to just classroom, has certainly taken a lot more time, but we think it's well worth it!
