Today was a very hard but awesome day. We climbed a mountain, there was points were I wanted to give up. But I thought to myself “Am I really going to let these people down?” going up here was a challenge, but once at the top It was all worth while. Like David said “Give it 100%, Go hard or go home.” At the end Im very glad I pushed myself, to get up those rocks. Now, to go down?

Marisol and Group Hiking Down Stairs

A lesson that I learned through out this journey is iner beauty. The air, mountains, wind, water all give me the feel of iner beauty. Like the story said, “Listen closely.” We don’t touch the wind and waterfalls, they touch us. We are the people in their world, and they’re just generous to let us be in it. We just need to listen and enjoy what they have to give us. (:

If I had to describe the wildlink trip to others Id define it as a feel of accomplishment and amazement. Yeah, when you see the scenery its breathtaking, but you don’t get the feel of accomplishment a mindblowing feeling until you hike up mountains getting to the highest point, making this abnormal place your home. Pushing yourself to a point you’ve never been pushed before. All you think about when your up here is how blind you’ve been. Blind the way of never going headfirst in a expierence like nature. You realize things that youd never take a second to think about. You then realize this isn’t your world that these creatures are living in, it’s their’s. All these birds, wildlife, nature open your eyes to the real meaning of life. Its like they talk to you. The little things that we don’t take the time to care for or even look at are the ones that makes this world worth while.
