I never would have thought I'd get the chance to travel across the country to hike in the mountains for two weeks. And I definitely didn't think I would do it for class credits. But the time I spent in Arizona during J-term was a really great experience. I met people I never would have known otherwise, and saw places I never have before. The picture below is of one my favorite views, from the top of Bear Mountain. But it is just one of the many beautiful places we went in Arizona. The more we traveled through the state, the more I was sure I want to go back again and see even more. I can't say enough how happy I am I took this class, and I will remember the experiences forever.
