TechieForLife Student’s Experience With The Chuckwalla Trail Hike

 

A TechieForLife student’s experience with the Chuchwalla trail hike:

At the beginning of enrolling to TFL, I thought I would like to hike.

Months later, I didn’t like it because some terrains are too high for me that require an old rope to hold on, or to climb; wrong clothing to wear, especially anything made out of cotton; and careless people who forgot to remind everyone to apply sunscreen.

But the Chuckwalla was a fine hike. There some huge steps, but I went over them.

At the end, we see a whole view of a neighborhood.

While I was going back, I saw Cam and Dallin trying to climb up a boulder with no equipment. It made me cringe when they did that because they’re close to a cliff.

I’ve already been to this trail last year, but it was worth it. -Dave TFL student

River Rafting with Our Techie For Life Students

In August, we took a trip to the Colorado River around Moab on a river rafting trip.

During the day, we would row down the river and then return to camp by evening.

Jason brought his wife and girls over, so it was like having extended family over.

We spent our time on the river on “duckies” and rafts moving lazily along interspersed with light rapids.

Some of us decided to swim along as well.

After a few hours on the river, we would return to camp where we would have dinner and hang around the campsite.

This was a nice, intimate experience where we got to know each other better.

Overall, everyone had fun on the trip, and we may do it again in the future. — Dylan, TFL student
