Best Class At Otterbein!

The trip to Arizona was an amazing experience for me. I was nervous before the trip, wondering how hard it would be for me and whether I'd get along with all these people I didn't know very well. As soon as I met everyone at the airport, I realized I was going to have a fun two weeks. Everyone got along great, and we worked really well together through out the whole trip.

Our hikes were definitely hard, but as the days went on, we found ourselves struggling up the mountains less, and truly beginning to enjoy our hikes. I tried to take a lot of pictures, but it was so hard to capture the things I was actually seeing.

I chose this picture because I took it at one of my favorite places we visited, the bottom of the Grand Canyon. When we crossed the bridge coming off of the South Kaibab trail, there was a small beach along the Colorado River. We all met there and relaxed on the beach and rocks and enjoyed the warm sunshine. The water was freezing! It was the most beautiful sight on the trip for me. I was also amazed that we could go from slipping down the top of the trail on ice to taking off our layers down to our shorts and t shirts to enjoy the sun at the bottom.

I am so glad I went on this trip with everyone. It was a great experience and a lot of fun. I keep telling Dr. Fischer I'll be tagging along next year!
