Jeff, I just planned a "classic" hike that I'm very excited about! I just got approval to take 35 high school students to the top of Mt. LeConte in October! The hike is curriculum related, but a side benefit is getting youngsters out in the wilderness to learn just how lucky we are to have these mountains nearby.
