Mt. Elbrus: Grom & Team Wrap Up Their Trip in St. Petersburg

What a day, what a day!

We started the day off with a nice walking tour of this majestic city with our kind Russian guide Natasha. She led us around St. Petersburg stopping by the major highlights this city is know for and educated us to its deep history. We visited the Church of the Savior of Spilled Blood, St. Peter’s Square, and St. Isaac’s Cathedral along with many other beautiful sites. We took a brief break for lunch and explored a little on our own. Most of the team visited the Hermitage know for its incredible art collection, while others sought out their own adventure.

We reconvened around 8 and Natasha took us on a spectacular boat tour on the many canals that intertwine this city. The day was very rewarding for everyone and I’m pretty sure everyone would love to stay longer.

It has been a wonderful adventure the last two weeks with a great team! In a way it’s sad that we’ve reached the end of this trip. Good times were had and good friends were made!

Missing all of our families and most of our friends.
