This morning, I woke up at 8am on a pullout couch in my aunt’s living room. After traveling two and a half hours to get to Teays Valley, I felt tired, yet excited, to begin a journey across the country. After stopping for a breakfast at Panera, we headed out for a two hour drive to John Glenn Airport in Columbus. This drive consisted of my sister, my friends, and our kind chaperone making a lot of jokes. For lunch, we made a stop at Chic-fil-A. Unbeknownst to us, it was Cow Appreciation Day; in other words, it was rather busy and hectic. We ate a quick lunch, headed out, and arrived at our destination on time. The next thirty or so minutes consisted of 21 very stressed students and adults trying to board our flight in due time. Fortunately, we all made it safely for a peaceful two hour flight. We ended our flight in the only acceptable way: clapping and cheering loudly. For dinner, we quickly ate tacos at the Austin Texas airport before boarding our next flight towards our final destination: Denver, Colorado. This second flight seemed ETERNAL due to it not only being our second flight, but a lack of AC on the airplane. After about a million years, we landed safely. A sigh of relief could be heard from everyone as we stepped off of the airplane. Other than this, nothing could be heard as we headed towards our rental cars. We were all beginning to feel the tiring affects of traveling all day. Eventually, our rentals were ready and we packed into the cars. Now, I sit in a car on my way to our hotel for the evening along with four of my new friends. Our chaperones are playing (very good) eighties music. I’m feeling very excited to wake up tomorrow to an eventful day full of hiking and exploration.
