Speaking of youth trips…

Add this one to the file for “youth trips I’m glad I wasn’t leading”.

First, and most obviously, because that’s just a scary scenario.

Second, because I can only imagine what the more tense moments of that trip were like. teen age drama taken to it’s max, and I speak as one who engaged in a bit of teen-aged drama myself  when hiking in the Sierras with my own family, even when we knew where we were!!
