My contribution

I think that what I am bringing to this group is something that we can have in common. Our two groups are completely different which makes it all the more difficult for us to come together. But I think we can pull it off if we all pitch in a little. We will see how it goes the rest of the week.

Half Dome, by Eli (drawn in pencil)

"To me a lush carpet of pine needles..."

I think that this quote from Helen Keller fits me perfectly. "To me a lush carpet of pine needles and spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian Rug." I would rather be in the outdoors than anywhere else that I can think of. It is so nice to be able just to go outside away from all of the headaches of life and to sit down and clear your mind of everything that is bothering you. I think that the problem with a lot of poeple is they don't spend enough time outdoors, and then when they are there they can't appreciate it because they are not sued to it.

Eli works with his group to conduct the dissolved oxygen test.
