As a senior, I dreaded the thought of senior survival. The trip was exactly as I expected it to be. Long days of paddling, painful portages, and wet rainy nights. This trip was more difficult because our class had to complete it in three days rather than four. Despite the pain of carrying the canoes and paddling for hours, I never expected to have such a great time on this trip. I think this is a trip everyone should experience at least once in their life. Being surrounded by the breath-taking nature makes you realize how great God really is. As exhausted as I was by the end, it was satisfying to think of what my class and I accomplished. This was an excellent experience for our class, and I think we learned the importance of working together and being able to rely on each other.
