This is when it really gets fun. Let's put these new skills to work for us. Like kids playing in the woods, we get to explore our environment and we'll learn to move through it safely! It's just the Gold and Green mountain area, so not exactly an "alpine" environment, but totally great area to practice the skills we're learning! Today we step off the trail.
