  • I don't think that I have ever had an experience quite like this trip to Munising.  I've fallen in love with the scenery, the smell, the weather, but most of all the water.  This trip has been a very eye opening experience for me and pushed my love for the Upper Peninsula. Two days ago we...

  • In June of 2011, I took an Alaskan Cruise with my family.  Besides being the most incredible trip I have ever been on, it was also a gift.  Instead of going to Alaska by themselves for their Fiftieth Anniversary, my grandparents took the whole family of thirteen with them!  Throughout this trip,...

  • The journey of a lifetime. The breathtaking scene of the rocky mountains painting jagged peaks across the horizon. Experiencing John Denver’s “rocky mountain high” for the first time. This was not a vacation; it was a week-long journey at the J. Kyle Braid Leadership Ranch in Villa Grove, Colorado...

I’ll still come back me.” But no matter how badly I want to be right Their words to this day come back with a bite. I did come back...

  • Colombia has beautiful colinas: green clouds that go on forever and make you feel as though you can jump from one to the other in a leap. My abuelo has a farm with hills like these and dirt paths that transform you into creatures on the hunt for food and shelter. His granja is a jungle. It goes on...

  • It was hot and humid when I stepped outside the airport, but the excitement of exploring the ancient city of Beijing drowned out the heat like a cool summer rain. My friends, Zach and Alisha were there to meet me and thus began my adventure. My friends educated me with the Chinese greeting, “nǐ...

  • My family has always been dedicated to traveling. I loved almost every second of our trips, although sometimes the heat nearly killed me, and there was one facet of the adventure I looked forward to the most. It wasn’t the rides, the ice cream, or swimming in the ocean, though all of these were...

  • My first instinct was that I wasn't going to like the Estrella Mountain community. There was not much too it. All I saw was, The Elliot Market drug store, a gas station, and houses. In mind that was really all there was and I didn't understand why my single mom wanted to settle here.  It has now...
