  • Yosemite National Park: Merced Grove Cabin


Today, we had a snowball fight. It has been 3 days on the expedition. I have made a lot of new friends. Also, I learned how to clean my own water. Finally, I made a snowman.

My perspective of the trip before and after is that I can’t believe how many new friends I have made.

I learned from this experience in the nature is that we need to protect the wilderness from being damaged. Also to leave no trace of us being here because it can impact the wilderness. Those lessons apply to my everyday life because it’s telling me that I need to be coming to the Earth and to the wilderness.

This experience in the wildness has made me learn that nature is a present that we need to protect and keep safe from the human habitation. I hope to take back home is the lesson that nature is a gift that we need to keep safe or we won’t have any wilderness to show our kids later on.
