I have many exciting summer adventures to share with students in August, but perhaps the most exciting event of my summer was my trip to the Grand Canyon. I went with four other teachers and we camped at the South Rim for four days and had an incredible time. On the second to last day there, two of my camping buddies and I hiked the Grand Canyon. On foot we traveled 3,100 feet down, 3,100 feet up, 12 miles, and all of this in 9 hours! It was the most incredible adventure and in addition to the natural beauty the canyon has to offer, there is also science EVERYWHERE! I am very excited to share my pictures and observations during the unit on geology! Below are a few pictures that I took of the canyon and our hiking adventure!
