Friday, June 23: the day before the entire staff arrives

Clouds are coming over, the wind is up, and we are expecting a June storm. This is the calm before the storm, for sure, and the entire summer '17 staff arrives tomorrow. Here are some shots I took just walking around.

the longest day of 2017 here at Frost Valley

Leadership training week (for VCs, Adventure staff, CIT and AIT coordinators, MAC and Farm and Equestrian leaders, et alia) has reached its midpoint. Next week the entire summer staff arrives and does a week-long training, as always. The following week the first session starts.

Here are some photos (taken with my fisheye lens) depicting various scenes on this longest day of the year.
