One student told this story:
I had a good experience when we went hiking and then afterwards made arts and crafts. I liked that we got to enjoy the nature, such as the deer, rabbits, streams, and many mountains. Another thing that I thought was fun was when we each got to decorate our own letters of our first names. Lastly, I liked that we got to cook our own food on a campfire and prepare it ourselves. Overall, I had a pretty good time when we went to the mountains.

Finally, this student expressed this:
The hike today was beautiful. I'm so grateful to spend this time with my Cedar Ridge family. I loved being able to encourage the girls that had a harder time with the hike. I could empathize with the ones that felt like they couldn't make it because I can remember one specific hike with my brother and my dad in Colorado where they were in much better shape than me. I struggled, but I knew that it would be worth it for the view. So I was able to use this experience to empathize and I'm grateful for that.
Exploring the nature and the sun beating on myself is beautiful. I like to feel as if I'm on an adventure in this beautiful place I call home. Climbing up the mountains made me feel stronger and uplifted me. I strived to get to the top. The sky was grey, but there was a small glimpse of a ray of sunshine that would go upon my face. I take climbing up mountains as it is in my program at Cedar Ridge. I was motivated to reach the top and feel powerful from each step I took. The view is so outstanding, the trees were huge, and the birds were chirping. Up here in the Uinta Canyon feels like heaven. Life is filled with new adventures and endless possibilities.
