USF Koinonia Camping Adventure … Day 1: On the Rincon Trail

The men of USF Koinonia “saddled up our horses” and loaded up our minivans early Friday morning.  After a power breakfast, we hit the road, ready for a rigorous hike.  We stopped at our Sierra Lodge, where Pastor Ed Kang and Kelly Kang were leading a retreat for the staff of Berkeley Gracepoint, to drop off Angell.

Fortunately, we were welcomed to join them for lunch (oh yeah, right place, right time!), so instead of bagel sandwiches, we feasted on teriyaki meatballs, fresh salad, and steamed rice.
Alright, alright, so the “roughing it” part hadn’t started yet…
After that quick pit stop, we were back on the road, heading towards the majestic Lake Tahoe.  We stopped at D.L. Bliss State Park, located at the southern end of the western shore.  There we had a first adventure: a grueling 8.2-mile hike to and from Vikingsholm, a mansion stylized after an ancient Nordic castle.  Sound cool?  Click {here} for a picture!
The first half of the hike was mostly downhill, which meant that the return trip was uphill.  Painful… but the good news is we all made it back, including Matthew!
