- Expedition: Nov 7-12, 2010
- Kingsburg HS
- Yosemite National Park
Wilderness gives us a chance to be at peace, away from the stress of school or work. It gives you a new respect for mother earth, for what she gave us and how we need to protect it. It’s beautiful. We need to preserve it so that future generations can see it and be in awe, like we were. Now with a new respect for nature, I will try harder to help do my part in protecting nature/natural resources.
I learned that I am strong. Strong enough to climb a mountain, and hike down 3,000 miles. That I can put up with cold, wet conditions to see the true beauty of it all.
