So one of the many super cool things my new school does is some serious outdoor education. Every student does three outdoor overnight trips a year. This Spring I co-lead a group of eight graders on a week long backpacking trip up Hell’s Canyon.
We got really lucky with the weather. We were just after the rainy season but just before the summer hear. It was beautiful the entire time and the views were spectacular. My family used to go backpacking nearby in the Wallowa Mountains but always in August when Hell’s Canyon had turned yellow again.
