Mt. Elbrus: Grom & Team Finish Their Trip in Russia

It was a great day here in St. Pete’s!

We started the day with a walking tour of this beautiful city led by our wonderful local guide Natasha. She took us to the major sites and enlightened us to the 300 years of this city’s history. We took a short break where some folks did a little exploring on there own, and others headed to the famous Hermitage where we learned that if someone spent one minute at every piece of art, it would take 8 years to view it all! Needless to say, we saw only a fraction of it.

Later in the evening the team headed out on a final tour of this majestic city by boat. We spent an hour touring the city from its many canals, which was a great way to wrap up our trip.

It’s been a wonderful adventure with a great team. We are all thankful for the great weather we’ve had, but are looking forward to getting back home.

Missing all of our families and most of our friends.

See ya soon!
