VALHALLA, N.Y. -- Following reading the novel "A Walk in the Woods" by Bill Bryson, a group of Valhalla High School students took a hiking trip to echo the experience.
On April 29, the VHS Book Club, chaired by teachers Cayne Letizia and Kerry Dinsmore, took a field trip to the top of Bear Mountain.
Together, approximately 30 students and a handful of chaperones, hiked the Appalachian Trail.
Music teacher Dr. Scott Rimm-Hewitt lead the club members through the nature paths. He even played the tuba at the top of the mountain.
