|MAP FOR THE HIKE|
The day was exciting as we are going on the first hike of the year. Most of us were motivated at the beginning as we gathered outside the library in school at 6.30a.m. :) I had to help the sixers sort out the submission forms by their Six.
The two buses loaded with noisy cubs drove us to Venus Drive, a parking lot near the starting point of the hike. After the adult leaders were assigned to each six, the hike began !
|Yay! We are finally moving off!!!|
|What's the hold up?|
At the beginning of the hike, we were all very energetic but as we climbed up a few of the “hills”, we were losing our steam. I observed that when the cubs were more tired, they talked less. So finally it became slightly quieter and peaceful in the jungle. When we were at a ranger station resting and using the toilet, we saw a wild rooster, which was big and tender - made us think of eating KFC. While we were there, we were glad to know that we are near the bridge :)
|Yum! Yum! KFC anyone??!!|
As we were walking along, I saw one of the adult volunteer tie a cub’s shoelace!
I also saw a poisonus mushroom which was grey in colour and looked like withered leaves.
Scenary on the bridge, the far side is Malaysia...
