Cross Country Meet at Sand Plum

The second Saturday in October was the day for a cross country meet hosted by FHSU at the Sand Plum Nature Trail in Victoria, KS. Dan took the boys out to Grandma's house the night before so they could watch all the races.  There were so many schools there this year that they had to split up the racers into two groups each for the men and women.

Bundled up for a chilly morning.

At the race course.

Those aren't just walking sticks, you know!

In front of the cannon used to start the races.

Taking a break at Daddy's truck.

A bicycle rider leads the racers so they know which way to go.

They came back to the nature trail later in the day when it was much warmer.

Off-trail fun!
