Three weekends ago, I took an amazing trip up to Michigan to canoe with a group of students during our fall break. It was an awesome experience. I have never done something like this before and was fast to jump on this opportunity. The ten of us drove four hours to the Au Sable river and journeyed for three days, paddling a total of about 60 miles. We camped and cooked our own meals. I only knew one person before the trip but made some new friends by the end. We had fun tying our canoes together, standing up in the canoe, standing on the bows of the canoes (picture below), cracking jokes, and sharing life. I am looking forward to the next adventure… whatever that might be!
