Hopes and Fears: I hope I come out of this trip a sane man. I hope it is all positive. I hope I carry that pack. I fear the hike, my pack is huge! I’m afraid that I’ll step on one of these birds

How has nature affected you?
As a kid, I practically grew up in the natural spots surrounding my house so it molded my character.

Yosemite has given me appreciation for the world’s natural beauty. Also, how much I hate heights was really highlighted.

I see: Bears Trees Soil quality

I wonder: Is the biggest bear in Yosemite correlated to its location? How clean is the water? Where is the most fertile soil? Is insect size correlated to location?


Josh was a crucial member of the science investigation team...let's learn about ants!
