America has a treasure in our national parks. Not everyone is lucky enough to experience a national park but any time you can you should. They are filled with natural wonders and sights you will not find anywhere else. There are many programs out there that the national parks offer as well as free admission to many areas as well.
Recently, the Barnhart School in Arcadia took their 7th grade class to Yosemite National Park. Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevada Mountains is known for their towering sequoias and stunning vista views.
Mr. Williams, of The Barnhart School, shared with Pasadena Now a summary of the trip from one of his student’s named Keara.
Keara writes “Yosemite is a place where you find your inner thoughts and reflect on life. It is where mountains touch the sky and trees surround you. This week has been adventurous and challenging. The woods pulled us deeper into nature and the cliffs told us to climb higher. The adventure was to hike until you couldn’t and laugh until your chest hurt. Most of all everyone pushed themselves to their limit. The spider tested everyone’s ability to communicate. The fun activities we participated in showed the bonding trust between everyone. Overall the trip was full of learning and fun filled moments.”
A place where mountains touch the sky and trees surround you truly sums up why our great National parks are a gift that we should all experience.
