It would take some pretty high energy for most folks to take on the heat and humidity of a typical summer day around here, and that’s just what twelve High Energy Campers from Lake Talquin have been doing all week. On Monday, they rented bicycles from Electric Wheels and Grinds, and spent the warm June morning riding around Monticello. ECB Publishing was on hand to snap their pictures just as the returned from their ride. Volunteer Counselors Boots Bryan and Curly Weinell described the one-week camp, sponsored by the Girl Scout Council of the Florida Panhandle, as an “off-campus” type of camp, where every day, the girls go to a different location to enjoy another outdoor activity. Plans for the week included canoeing on both Lake Talquin and the Wakulla River, hiking the Fort Braden Trail, zip-lining and visiting a rock-climbing museum. The girls, ages 11-17, hail from Pensacola, Milton, Cantonment, Panama City, Crawfordville and Tallahassee.
