Autumn, Michelle, Abbey, Lauren, & Mrs. Bates Alex, Gabe, Kally, Indigo, Wilson, Matt

I can now say I have not merely hiked in the mountains, or around the mountains, but that I have hiked over a mountain. I have stood atop a peak, and looked around 360 degrees. Okay, so it wasn't Everest, and there were taller mountains

around me. But none of that diminishes the fact that I did it. And I did it carrying 35lbs on my back. Indigo Scott Kally & Amanda

We hiked a lot - I think the total for our group was about 50 + miles. We did some fishing and ate some great trout. We studied flowers, geology and astrology. We saw snakes, deer, elk, a bear, a porcupine and

many a marmot. We played cards and fun games around the fire.

We got a shower ( a glorious event) and had fun in town for the day. Mostly though we found out that we are but a small part of a great big wonderful world. IT WAS A GREAT TRIP - it was fun - it was hard - it was great.

I am happy and proud to have went and hope that many more students and chaperones take " It is not the goal but the way there that matters, and the harder the way the more worthwhile the journey. Wilfred Thesiger
