Mountain Day!

Who wouldn’t like a break from classes and hike a mountain instead?!
Mountain Day, one of the Academy’s oldest traditions, was held on Tuesday, September 25. The entire Cushing community boarded buses and made the short trip north to Mt. Monadnock in Jaffrey, New Hampshire, which is claimed to be the most climbed mountain in the world (elevation 3,166 feet) for a day of hiking and a barbecue lunch. With perfect fall weather and views for miles, it was a great way to appreciate our New England surroundings.
