What is your expectation of wilderness?

I don't really know yet what I am going to expect. I expect that there is going to be a lot of trees and a bunch of other animals. I also expect it to be really cold and foggy. I expect myself to learn something very interesting about Yosemite and about its history and stuff. Then I also expect that I have a great time while I'm over there. Then I hope everything turns out fine.

What was the reality of wilderness?

My experience in wilderness, the outdoors, was great. I like d being out with everyone, and I think we all had a great time. I had a couple of downhills but I never gave up. It was raining a lot but we all tried to have a great time. There were some parts I didn't like at all because for one, our tent flew off and my sleeping bag got all wet. There were also alot of puddles in the tent. I guess that's all right because that was all part of the experience. My experience in the wilderness did match my expectations a little bit because I knew it was gong to be cold and rainy. They kind of did match up to my expectations.
