Blueberry jam and a mini pancake, and 2 bowls of fruit. It was delicious. While everyone else was finishing up getting ready I sat […]Read More Favorite day
We made it back to Switzerland! This was one of my favorite hikes of the week so far. We woke up bright and early at 4:55 and were promptly on the trail by 5:30. I don’t really much of what happened before 10:30. I ate some granola bars and strutted along my merry way. At […]Read More SWITZERLAND
This morning we got to sleep in for the first time all trip. I slept so nice until I heard someone knocking on our door. We went promptly up to the room our parents were sleeping in and were welcomed by an assortments of different croissants, bread, yogurt, and fruit. This was probably one of […]Read More “Rest day”
Today basically started last night because I did not sleep at all. The bunks creaked whenever someone moved an inch the entire bunk bed would creak, there was thunderstorms all night, and it was a very uncomfortable bed. We woke up to lighting and thunder. We quickly ate the provided breakfast which was so unappetizing […]Read More Hail.

Woohoo! Today we sumitted our first mountain of the trip! The scariest part of today was possibly the drive in. It was like a road full of literally boulders and Fred was twisting and turning and going in all directions a car is not supposes to go in. I was petrified. The hike to the […]Read More Centennial Peak
