Del Oro High School Southwest Summer Trip 2014
Organized by: Savannah Ridgley
In the beginning of February I was chosen to be included in the Del Oro High School Southwest Trip. Its a trip most all of the 20 students accpeted have two years prior in order to save the approximate $4,000.00 cost of the trip. I was selected last minute and given an amazing opportunity to be apart of this amazing adventure! Its a 28 day trip focused on evaluating the water issues found across the Southwest, Photography, and extensive outdoor education. This trip includes hikes/ photo shoots in Yosemite, Death Valley, Valley of Fire, Zion, Mono Lake, Canyonlands, Jasper Canyon, Cataract Canyon, Moab, Grand Canyon, Havasu Falls, and Lake Powell. This trip also brings Canyoneering in Slot Canyon, Tour of Hoover Dam, Mountain biking in Slickrock, Canoeing down the Green River, and much more. This trip is completely isolated from all technology excluding the cameras brought! Every night is spent outside sleeping under the stars and each day building not only knowledge but a new sense on the world around you! Its a once in a life time opportunity and any sponsorship donation would mean the world to help me with the last stretches to reach my goal!
