Welcome to December

As I write this I am checking the low temperature for Monday and it is at 39 degrees. Woah... That's winter temps here in Newhall. Prior to the cold, Eric Olsson took me on a nice hike in Elsmere Canyon on Saturday. The shot above is looking over Elsmere Canyon as the sun rises. When I checked my app on my phone it showed that what we had hiked on the elevation scale included 72 stories. I took a couple more good pictures of Eric as you can see below. It was a good trek.


We have been taking a good trek through this quarter with only three weeks left it is going by very quickly. This week we have the Winter Concert for the Choir and Orchestra on Wednesday (12/5) at the Hart Auditorium at 7:00 PM. We also have the Hearing Screening on Wednesday too. Also on Wednesday (busy day :) we have Leadership Team Meeting at 2:45 in Room 44.
