Hopes: being out here to be me enjoying the peace am glad to be away form city & school no homework no worries am glad to be learning new things * and last meeting all the new people.

Fears: I'm not used to being so high I am not used to hiking so much Afraid of bugs and snakes scared of fear itself

Wilderness is: When I got here I thought it would be easy. For the first 2 days I stayed at Camp Curry. It was real fun. I met everyone and made them all my friends then on Wednesday we took our first trail. I did it all right, having some trouble with the mountain, but finished. Then the next day we hiked up Cloud's Rest which was so hard for me because it's all straight up. I almost didnt' make it. When I stayed here is was so different. I got so dirty and tired that wilderness is not what I thought it would be, but it made me realize expect alot when coming.
