The help we needed

It was the second session of the summer, and I was working as a counse­lor-in-training at a camp for Christian Scientists. I was part of a seven-day backpacking program, and our trip had gone very well. We were on our last peak climb and had to get up and over Mt. Harvard. There was decent climbing weather in the morning, and it didn’t look as if there would be any threat of rough weather. This soon changed, though, as we got closer to the peak around noon, which was supposed to be the ideal time to reach the summit, since we needed time to head back. 

Clouds began to roll in on our group, and we soon lost sight of the top of the mountain. That’s when a friend joined us.
