Today was an amazing experience. It started in the morning at 7:30, when my brother and I went to eat an early breakfast to catch the bus. The bus left shortly after 8am, after everyone had been divided into groups with leaders. One of the buses was for jr high students, and the other was for us older folk.

The hike itself was long and difficult. Just a few minutes in, many of us were already breathing heavily from the steep incline. As we slowly moved higher and higher, our hearts began to thump harder, and we were easily lightheaded. A few times on the way up I had a headache. Many people turned back before reaching the top, but we eventually made it up after quite sometime. The whole hike took hours.


If I were to appear on the Simpsons, this is what I would look like when wearing church clothes, and in normal clothes.
