On the Hill: Llama trekking up Pitkin Creek trail

On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, brings you a video report about a different High Country adventure every weekday.

Today's activity: Llama trekking with Vail Mountain School

Details: Vail Mountain School enjoyed their first day of class for the 2013-14 season on Monday, which meant a day out in the wilderness for many students there. Kids choose from various activities to begin the year in a fun and educational way outside of the classroom, like camping, fishing and trekking up the side of a mountain with a llama.

Today's weather: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 3 p.m. Partly sunny, with a high near 69. South southwest wind around 5 mph. — National Weather Service
