Hiking Day 3: When I woke up my water bottle had ice in it and so did other people’s water. We had more oatmeal and hot chocolate. Then we cleaned up and packed up. When we looked at the maps, we figured out that we were losing more altitude than we would gain today and we would walk a total of about 8 miles. We started walking pretty fast toward El Capitan, the largest rock in the world…When we got there I was scared for my life because I am really scared of heights. After that me and Brian, the other leader of the day, decided to have lunch there at El Capitan. We finished up lunch and started to hike to Eagle Peak…We stayed at the summit for about thirty minutes and wrote in our journals. Up there I felt really scared and accomplished because I made it up there in one piece.
