Grade 6 students traveled to Yosemite in late October for a chance to see and hike through one of the world’s most famous and scenic national parks. Thanks to the clear weather, the students were able to enjoy the park’s natural beauty with little interruption. Clear skies gave way to a wonderful view of the Milky Way, and the travelers were greeted during their many hikes with brisk, fresh air.
Landmarks visited during the trip included the Spider Caves, Vernal Falls, Yosemite Falls and Glacier Point. It was also a bittersweet trip for some, as the students met with and bid goodbye to their Tamagawa buddies, who they will see in the spring when they visit Japan.
