- Expedition: Sep 10-15, 2000
- Kingsburg, Merced, and Tokay High Schools
- Chain Lakes
WHAT I HAVE REALIZED during this three days is that once we put our mind to it, we can accomplish many different things. For example yesterday when we were doing our own exploration, I was going through some rocks when I stepped down from one I kind of twisted my ankle and it hurt and I wanted to stop but I just put my mind to it and kept on going. Also I realized that if we can work together we can accomplish many things like with the pot raising yesterday. We all had to work together to accomplish the job because if we all would do what we wanted we would have probably spilled the water.
The person that I would love for them to come is my mom. I think that she would not come because she really would not like to hike up for 5 miles and be out here in the cold and just to be without any of the things of home.
Mom I think that chain lakes is one of the best places there [is] to go to because it is very beautiful, peaceful, and you can not regret it. It might seem that 5 miles is a lot but once you actually get to the 2nd and 3rd or even the last lake you cannot regret that hard work and I also think that you would love coming out here because you love plants and out here there is some beautiful plant life. So all I got to say is that coming is an experience you can't explain.
